Solahart was a pioneering solar hot water developer based in Perth which is now part of Japan's Paloma Group, through its Rheem Australia subsidiary. In 1953, plumbing company SW Hart and Co decided that the sun was the best energy source to heat water in Western Australian homes. As a result, solar hot water in Australia was born. Solahart became a world leader in solar innovation and technology and invested millions of dollars into R&D and manufacturing. It has installed over 1 million systems in over 70 countries around the world. In 2001 it was purchased by Paloma.
