How environmentally friendly [‘green’] are ISL solar systems?

Answer

A number of features have been incorporated to make ISL solar systems very environmentally friendly:
  • The system can run on plain tap water and requires no chemical anti-freeze, when installed as per the installation guides.
  • The system is PV powered and consumes no high carbon electricity to run the pump or controls.
  • Low embodied energy collector design. The ISL solar panel design uses small amounts of material and minimises the use of aluminium, a material requiring high energy use for manufacture.
  • Our standard hot water cylinder is CFC and HCFC free, and has zero ozone depletion potential.
  • Solar panel insulation is CFC and HCFC free glass wool with CFC and HCFC free polyurethane insulation behind.
  • The ISL solar system displaces many times more carbon dioxide over its lifetime than is used in its manufacture or operation.
