We are on the market for a new hot water system as our old electric model is cactus.
I’m wondering if anyone has any comments on their experience with solar hot water in Canberra, brands, efficiency, relability?
I am currently comparing Solahart and Edwards. Edwards has a stainless steel tank and seems to have better quality fittings, but the panels are not as efficient as the Solahart ones. I’m concerned that in winter this will mean more days using the booster. Solahart seems to have great efficiency, and gets more RECs than the Edwards, but the tank is steel and hence has to have a sacrificial anode.
Thanks for any info you can give!
