How can businesses benefit from solar hot water?

Solar water heating is a highly efficient and effective way to reduce energy costs when using hot water.  If you own or manage a business that uses large amounts of hot water such as a hotel, retirement village, brewery or vineyard, solar water heating can make a significant dent in your direct costs. The savings go straight to your bottom line.

For over a decade, Apricus have been installing industry leading solar water heating systems around the world. In New Zealand, our team have completed a number of commercial installations and are ready to work, assess and discuss your business needs, and the potential savings that could be made from solar water heating.

All Apricus systems are designed and installed to integrate seamlessly with existing hardware, ensuring hot water is guaranteed 24/7 whilst savings are optimised.

Corporate Sustainability

A solar water heating system clearly illustrates to your customers that you are taking environmental sustainability seriously and have put in place measures to control costs for the long term.

Using the global standard software Polysun, we can model predicted energy savings and the reduction in carbon emissions your business will achieve using an Apricus solar hot water system.  Once installed, the smart controller and web monitoring will provide accurate information for measuring and reporting on business sustainability.
