    How much hot water can two solar panels generate?

    We're due to move to a new house which has two solar panels (not sure of size yet) and wonder how much hot water these will generate.

    Their are two types of "solar panels" so to speak and you should probably figure out which is which. A photovoltaic solar panel will not heat water, it will create electricity that can be used to heat water with a conventional electric water heater. Solar hot water heating, is completely different from solar PV, effectively the water is heated as it passes through the panels and back in to a hot water tank. Do a little more research on the house, ask the owner.
