To understand the Carbon Payback of anything manufactured, one must first know it's Carbon Footprint.

Examining this principle, this article takes a look at the facts and figures of Carbon Savings to a typical UK home using Genersys solar.

Introduction
The benefit of Genersys hot water solar panels is twofold; you reduce your home energy bills by heating your water supply with the free energy of the Sun, and secondly, they reduce your carbon emissions by freeing you from the dependency on high polluting fossil fuels.

But not all solar panels are made equal, in fact, the carbon footprint of solar panels must be reduced to as small as possible, if they, like Genersys Solar Panels, are to save huge quantities of carbon over their lifetime.

This article takes a look at the manufacturing process and materials involved in the production of a Genersys solar panel; and how these contribute to a low carbon footprint, giving you a high performing, carbon saving solar panel.
