The Guiness Trust Group has been providing good quality,
affordable homes for over 100 years. Currently the Group provides
accommodation for more than 60 000 people in over 25 000 homes
across the country. It is one of the largest housing associations
The Guiness Trust decided to utilize solar heating due to its low initial
capital costs ease of installation, minimal maintenance and high levels
of CO2 savings.
Efficient vaccum solar collectors were chosen because they were compact, attractive and had high level performance even on cold winter days! Each apartment or house had a solar system on its roof, connected to a twin coil solar cylinder.
