Abstract

This report follows the successful completion of the largest group solar heating system serving individual dwellings in the UK. Solar collectors, integrated into the roofs of seven houses, feed a central water heat store which supplies space and water heating to eight flats and water heating to seven houses. The report describes the system design, the first year's operation and the capital costs. Some useful lessons are derived from the design, installation and monitoring phases.
