Until now the only way to obtain hot water was to invest in costly Solar Thermal. A typical Solar Thermal installation is in the region of £4800*, it typically provides 60%* of the hot water for the house.
SolarDivert 3000 works with all Solar PV systems and all hot water systems fitted with an immersion heater. The system automatically monitors the electricity usage of the whole house. If the energy that is being produced by the solar PV is in excess of that currently used by the house then the system will switch on the immersion heater. It will only ever power the immersion heater when there is excess power that would have otherwise been exported.
SolarDivert 3000 will only trigger when the excess energy from the house is in excess of that needed to power your immersion heater. If SolarDivert is supplying power to your immersion heater and an appliance is powered on in the house, SolarDivert detects the change and if it is the case that you will import electricity from the grid then SolarDivert will switch off the Immersion Heater.
SolarDivert 3000 is aimed at the domestic user who wishes to reduce their energy consumption and bills. SolarDivert will automatically run your immersion heater at various power levels dependent on the amount of energy being produced and consumed within the household.
