Identification

The flat-packable solar thermal collector is cheap to manufacture, transport, and install.

SolarisKit is ideally suited to provide hot water for households (showering/bathing, cleaning, laundering clothes etc), business (hotels, ecolodges, pool heating etc), and industry (textiles, aquaculture, paper, etc.). It is a device which can be quickly assembled using simple instruction and used to convert sunlight directly into hot water. It has been designed to provide a new and affordable way to harness solar energy to heat water at up to 50 degrees Celsius, lowering users energy costs and carbon footprint. This technology allows regions all over the world to provide heat while reducing demand on gas and electricity from the grid. For a typical household, our solar heating solution can lower annual carbon emissions by approximately 7000kg over its 10 year lifetime while reducing electricity costs to meet hot water needs by 50-80%.
