Origin is now offering Australian households the opportunity to go solar at home by installing a solar collector on their roofs, heating water using the power of the sun.

In adopting the process, households can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and their energy bills by using solar energy, instead of electricity or gas, to heat water.

Water heating is the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the home.¹ It also contributes substantially to household energy costs. In fact, according to the Department of Environment and Water resources, an electric solar hot water system could save between $300-$700 off electricity bills every year. And, reduce average household greenhouse gas emissions by around 2-4 tonnes of CO2.²

Origin can install solar in your home in three easy steps:
1. After you order either online or over the phone, we'll arrange a time and day for installation that's convenient for you.
2. Origin's solar hot water systems include installation of a collector on the roof of your home, which captures energy from the sun.
3. The sun heats the water in the solar collector, which is connected to your new gas or electric hot water system.
4. Your Origin solar hot water system is ready to enjoy with no change to your water supply.

Dominic Drenen, Business Manager Origin Solar, says that more Australians can now reap the benefits of solar energy. "There are numerous advantages to harnessing the abundant power of the sun to heat water. A solar hot water system can save households on their annual hot water heating costs because it uses less energy. You'll also be producing less greenhouse gas emissions."

Origin's solar hot water systems can be purchased online and include a 10-year warranty and come fully installed at no extra cost. Households do not need to be existing Origin customers or switch to Origin to install solar hot water. What's more, installing a solar hot water system won't change water supply, pressure or temperature.

Origin, Australia's number one green energy provider and leading supplier of grid connected solar systems, has made switching to solar energy and solar hot water easy and affordable. Visit http://www.originenergy.com.au/solar or call 1300 791 468 for further information.
