Reclaim Energy is the most efficient and smart hot water system in the Australian market, saving energy and reducing costs by 80 per cent.

This renewable and sustainable system provides users with ambient air to heat up a carbon dioxide natural refrigerant that has a zero global warming effect, consuming less than 0.01kWh for 1L of hot water production.

The annual savings of this project is about 4 GWh/year, equivalent to around 8,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.

In their first year of operation, Solar Thermal Victoria installed over 800 units across Australia, with above 70 per cent of installations in Victoria.
