Whether you’re a home owner or business operator in Malaysia, you may have encountered the term “solar thermal” in your quest for a trustworthy solar water heating system.
But what does solar thermal actually mean?
Solar thermal technologies harness the sun’s energy to produce electricity and transmit this energy as space heating or as heated water. With solar thermal energy sources, heat is usually generated indirectly. It primarily differs from PV technologies or photovoltaic solar panels which processes directly the sun’s energy into electricity.
