PV solar panels and water heating
Evacuated tubes and flat-plate panels were the most common form of solar heating until the advent of PV-powered heating converters. This technology converts excess PV-power to heat your home.
PV & water heating.
PV-hot-water converters can be part of a PV-package deal or incrementally installed further down your solar-powered road.
In a nutshell.
This new system is an innovative solar energy management product that puts your PV solar panels and their excess power to use within your home before exporting to the grid.
This system means you don't have to pay to import increasingly expensive electricity later for heating your tank. A standard water heating costs usually amount to 25% (depending on tank efficiency) of a typical household's energy costs, and that's a sizable saving.
Most households use a tank and immersion heater element to heat their hot water requirements, so it makes sense to adapt your existing solar technology to provide for this too.
The science bit.
For most households, using an immersion element is the most expensive way to achieve your daily hot water requirements, so using your already installed PV solar panel system to heat your hot water.
Compatible system sizes: 0.5-4KWp.
Size: 198 mm x 132 mm x 68 mm.
Immersion or Heater Power: 100W-3500W.
