A sustainable building design involves optimizing the energy use in the facility. For most homes, water heating accounts for over 60% of the total energy use. With our systems you are able to cut up to 3 tons of CO2 emissions annually compared to using a conventional electrical water heater, common for an average household. That is equivalent to planting over 21 trees in a year. Just for a single family. It’s amazing! There is more to it, you the professional, your client and the developer are able to give your project a higher value with an affordable investment that buys itself back in 2-3 years and leaves you enjoying hot water throughout the year for free. It all begins with a quick consultation. > Get us involved
HOW WE DO IT
We get cold water from your plumbing system then pass it through a collector on your roof to heat to high temperatures and then store it in an insulated tank, for a whole year use even in the coldest weather.> Learn More
Our systems are designed and tested beyond industry standards; European, African & American approach to quality for maximum savings, even in extreme conditions.See Certifications from some of our independent partners
We can offer you the best technology at the best price. Our systems come ready to mount, with a sleek frame for any roof. Controls are even easier. We also customize system to suit your need, even when the roof area is inadequate.See some of our products
Brochures & Sample specifications
Keep all the information you need about our products to hand. View our e-brochures below, or select and download a PDF. With our sample specification lists below you can specify exactly what you need and how you need it. An easy way straight to your bill of quantities for greatest savings. Once put on paper, our dedicated team will easily handle everything from start to finish for you. We will even assign a SOLARVED engineer who will guide you through the process and be with you even long after the system is set and running.
As the solar thermal technology rapidly advances and the cost of solar water heaters falls below traditional water heating technology in running costs and convenience, it’s time to turn to a better source of energy. And SOLARVED is leading the way for Africa, the green continent, in comprehensive renewable energy solutions for homeowners, large and small companies, government entities and utilities all across the continent.
Kenya as one of the pioneers of green energy in Africa has regulations (ERC solar water heating regulations 2012) that require every facility that uses more than 100 litres of hot water per day to use solar water heaters. And it’s compulsory as from May 2017. Engineers, architects and other solar professionals are encompassing the modern and the right way of tapping cheaper & cleaner energy sources for sustainable buildings.
You can maximize on the energy savings by choosing the best system, from our flat plate or evacuated tube collectors depending on where you want to place the system and the sun intensity in your area. Over 95% absorptivity of our collector panels ensures all year round hot water, and to top that, even in a cold night, our German sourced polyurethane insulation keeps the water hot for all weather use. See FAQs.

Get a system from one of our distributors. SOLARVED will guide you through the design, installation and even ensure that you continue enjoying the hot water for the lifetime of the system. Which is beyond most other building systems.
To get the optimum savings, whether in first or running costs, you need to have the right size of the system. You can make your project have the best heating capacities in the most affordable way. SOLARVED engineers will guide you through the design review, right from the project inception through
the client awareness and tendering periods to the final stages of the project. For our Kenyan solar professionals, see how to size a solar water heater system.
Choose best, get best. And from day one they’ll start repaying the planet by using far less energy.
