Heat The Water In Your Hot Water Cylinder with Free Electricity
These units work by monitoring your solar PV export and when it detects that you are exporting your free electricity it re-directs it to your immersion heater, storage heater, and/or electric underfloor heating.
Your utility bills will be significantly reduced, protecting you from rises in fuel costs and lowering your reliance on big utility firms.
Divert 100% of Your Energy and Still Get Paid From the Feed-In Tariff
Installing a solar PV water heating unit enables you to usefully and automatically consume any excess energy generated rather than export it back to the grid.
The export on a solar PV system is usually assumed to be 50%. Installing a Solar hot water system means you can divert 100% of your energy generated and you still get paid for the 50% export from the Feed-In Tariff scheme, therefore Feed-In Tariff payments are not affected.
Benefits of Solar iBoost+
- Solar iBoost+ fits quickly and neatly into your airing cupboard, simply wired between the existing switch and the immersion heater.
- It wirelessly receives information continuous from a sender device which activates the Solar iBoost+ to start water heating.
- A single battery operated radio sensor clamps around the household mains input cable so there’s no need for expensive wiring. The sender monitors the flow of electricity and transmits this information to the Solar iBoost+.
- The Solar iBoost+ intelligently controls the amount of energy fed into the immersion heater using information from the sender. It adjusts the energy flow to the immersion heater as your home consumption varies; ensuring that only excess power is used.
- There’s no need to change your immersion heater as Solar iBoost+ works with any normal household resistive immersion heater rated up to 3kW. Also suitable for use with dual immersion systems.
- The digital display informs you how much energy has been saved both historically and in real time. The operating status is monitored and warning lights inform the user of any alerts.
Solar iBoost+ works in harmony with your Economy 7 or 10 utility tariffs via user programmable times.
Solar iBoost+ includes an override switch, and has programmable timer options gives the user complete control.
How does it Work?
Using a single clamp installed at the household meter the sender transmits vital export energy information to the Solar iBoost+ wirelessly.
Solar iBoost+ is activated when excess energy is available. It intelligently controls and adjusts the flow of energy to the immersion in proportion with the fluctuating export levels.
Water is heated over the course of the day using the free solar energy at your home.
