Sense of solar

{{ tag.label }} {{ tag.label }} $vuetify.icons.faTimes
Ask any Australian and they’ll tell you the sun shines brightly in our country. It simply makes sense to harness the Australian sun for long-term savings and comfort with renewable solar energy for your hot-water system.

While the Federal government has a directed agenda around sweeping reforms and targets for household renewables, it’s consumers who are driving innovation and development in the space. They are demanding affordable long-term solutions that will improve their lives.

There are many ways to reduce your carbon footprint. Everything from solar panels to insulation to new battery technology can help, but the easiest way to achieve quick results is to add solar or heat pump hot water to your home.

Right across Australia, Rheem is renowned for its 'steady, hot and strong’ water systems. A lesser-known fact is that Rheem has been working on renewable energy hot-water technology for more than 40 years and is now a trusted leader in solar and heat pump solutions.
 

The Loline ground-mounted system offers an ideal installation solution where roof aesthetics are important or where roof space is limited, or the orientation of the roof to the sun is not quite right.
