It's my suspicion that the true cost ( of the solar assisted DHW kit)
together with a normal (not green-scam) price for installation could be
plausible.

It probably only plausible for houses with (vented) stored water systems
and then only when replacing the DHW cylinder and houses with a suitable
place to install the collectors. My own home would probably work out quite
easy to do as I have a flat roof with easy access.

If the kit was just a couple of hundred quid (which is what it would be if
it were mass produced like radiator/pumps/time controls etc.) The may be
it would be worth me doing it. Of course that a long way from doing for
someone else.... 8-(

Alas when I replaced the DHW cylinder in 2003 is did not get one with two
heater holes let alone two coils.

I think that's just what it is in Greece: you buy a package with a
collector and plumbing all connected up and stick it on your (flat) roof.
Cheap as chips over there and AFAIK not a gov't subsidy in sight.

Maybe Greek regulations are like their law (as was descibed to me) on
motorcycle helmets: they'e compulsory, if you feel like it ;-)

The Israelis have these as well .    It makes the skyline of Tel Aviv
really picturesque.

The packages cost about $00.   Very basic.   No insulation and a
header tank out on the roof as well.
