Solahart - Australia's Solar Pioneer

Solahart - a Proud History

Long before anyone had even heard of global warming and climate change, a pioneering plumbing supply company based in Perth decided that the sun was the best source available to heat water in Western Australian homes.

SW Hart & Co. had been in the plumbing business since 1901 but it was in 1953 that they pioneered solar hot water systems in Australia and Solahart was born.

Today Solahart has manufactured over one million solar hot water systems installed in 80 countries on every continent around the world.

As Australia’s solar pioneer we also offer a range of high performance solar power systems to help households and businesses reduce their energy bills and their impact on the environment.

Continuous Improvement

One of the keys to our success over the years has been the relentless pursuit of innovation. Our research capabilities and our solar testing laboratory are recognised internationally as Australia’s finest. We have developed a ‘Centre of Excellence’ approach for advanced technologies with an enviable Research & Development team across our manufacturing locations committed to developing the next generation of solar water heaters and assessing the latest solar energy technologies.

One thing is certain as we move forward to the future of solar - each generation of solar products we offer will be fundamentally better than the last and meet our own stringent standards of quality and performance.

Since 2001, Solahart has been part of Paloma Co. Ltd., an international leader in solar water heating and space heating. Paloma has fostered the pioneering spirit that built Solahart in the 20th century and has added the corporate strength of a leading global company to enable Solahart to grow even further in the 21st century.
