The How-To-Repair Group of Companies have a Solar Laundry in the Algarve, Portugal.

Killing running costs & being Green is the ethos of their Sister Company Recycled-Appliances. The first and only laundry in Portugal running on 100% renewable energy.
The Algarve boasts a magnificent all year-round climate, with over 3,000 hours sunshine a year and clear blue skies for most of the year. We take full advantage of this by running the washing machines from the hot water generated from the solar water heating systems together with solar PV for the electrical requirements.
With over 2,000 L of stored water capacity, High Efficiency solar panels ensuring the tanks have enough hot water to accommodate the dozens of washes daily. The tanks are heated in excess of 80°
We have several small and large washing machines running completely form the solar hot water, as well as tumbler dryers. Our machines are not auto fed with detergent and softener, this means you can use the detergent and softener you know and love.
