Why go solar?
Maximize your solar power benefits by using water as a battery
During the sunny days in Australia, most of the houses with photovoltaic solar panels on the roof generate more electricity than they are actually using. When this happens, the excess electricity is exported to the grid.
What many homeowners do not know is that solar panels (Solar PV) installed on their rooftop can be used to heat their electric hot water system. Given that a major energy demand in any home (often around 25%) is for hot water, it makes perfect scense to store your surplus solar power to heat your hot water system during the day, effectively turning it into an energy storage device.
Compared to the tradition solar hot water system which uses radiant heat, solar PV systems are much more cost effective with no energy losses. When the hot water tank reaches full tempreture the surplus solar power will then divert to the grid and you receive a feed-in tariff credit.
The good news is that a solar PV water heating system would require no additional installation other than a timer, which will activate the hot water system only during day light time. You hot water system will then typically be heated using your solar power. On rainy days when the sun is not shining the grid power will still heat your system.
As an alternative to a timer we also have power diverters which diverts the optimum amount of power. A power diverter will constantly monitor your surplus solar power and energy consumption and will precisely control the amount of power being diverted to your hotwater system to match your surplus solar power. This is very benificial on rainy days and minimises grid usage even further.
Hot water will heat from solar most of the time
Timers are installed for less than $200
It’s simple and adjustable by the user
