The affordable solar heating solution

Be part of the new cleaner world and make the switch to solar energy

Our Mission

The world’s first flat-packable solar thermal collector

SolarisKit collector

The SolarisKit solar collector is UK Patent Pending (GB1908889.7)

Heating water is expensive and carbon intensive. We can help you affordably lower your energy bill and emissions using sunlight.

Heating is an important part of our lives but it takes up a lot of energy. Depending on where you live, it can be as much as half of your household energy bill. It also produces a lot of carbon we need to drastically reduce. At SolarisKit, we have developed an exciting, new solar collector that lets you affordably convert sunlight into hot water, lowering both your energy costs and carbon emissions.

It is ideal for providing hot water for:

Swimming pools
Eco-lodges and hotels
Industrial applications requiring hot water

Why SolarisKit

Heating accounts for 40% of the world’s energy related greenhouse gas emissions and we have now reached the point where carbon emissions from the developing countries exceeds the first world. By focusing on the development of low-cost, high-value solar technology, our goal is to lower global carbon emissions while helping to improve the lives of millions of people in the developing world. Our technology can help make a big impact on your wallet and the environment.

The SolarisKit collector lets you harness solar energy which is –

• lower cost thanks to its flat-packable design
• cheaper to transport due to its size and weight
• easier to install with its push-fit connections
• suitable for homes, businesses, and industries requiring hot water.

How it works

SolarisKit solar collector

We think simple solutions are often the best, thats why our collector has been designed to be simple, elegant, and effective.

Sunlight first enters our collector through its transparent side panels and strikes the black, internal coil. Due to the absorption of solar radiation, the coil is heated, reaching temperatures of up 70 degrees C. Water which is circulated through the coil using a small pump, is heated and then stored in an insulated water tank for later use. When the time comes for a hot shower, you have a tank of hot water ready to be used after a day of sunshine.

Under conditions experienced by many countries, our solar collector can heat water to tempertures of up to 60 deg C, making it ideal for showering and laundry purposes. If the sun isn’t shining because its a cloudy day, a backup heater can be used like the typical heating element found in most hot water tanks to heat the water. For households, we aim to save 50-70% of of your hot water energy costs.

SolarisKit has worked extensively with Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh to develop and test the collector. If our solar collector works in Scotland, it will work almost anywhere! Download our flyer here.

Solar hot water for

Showering and bathing

  • Homes
  • Hotels
  • Ecolodges
  • Leisure centres

Swimming pool heating

  • Personal, and
  • Commercial swimming pools

Industrial process heating

  • Agriculture and aquaculture
  • Food and beverage
  • Textiles

The flat-pack advantage

What makes our solar collector special is the fact you can assemble it yourself. The whole process takes around 30 minutes and can be done by any adult using simple instructions and no special tooling.

We made our collector a self assembled kit for a few reasons:

  • It makes it cheaper to purchase as its cheaper to make.
  • It makes it easier and cheaper to transport and ship. Our collector can even be transported by bicycle or motorcycle when unassembled.
  • It makes the parts easy to replace should anything happen to any of its components. It’s built tough, but accidents do happen!
