The Solar iBoost+ concept is to divert the surplus photovoltaic energy generated at your home to heat the water in your household tank and save you money. Get the full benefit of your PV array and more..........
• Free hot water
• Drastic cuts in water heating costs, up to 100% in some cases and
• A new heating controller that puts you in control of water heating day and night
How it works
1. The Clamp and Sender device detect import and export energy. When there’s unused generation from your pv array being exported, a wireless signal activates the Solar iBoost+
2. Solar iBoost+ calculates the level of energy being exported.
3. Solar iBoost+ automatically controls and adjusts the flow of energy to the element/hot water in proportion to the fluctuating export levels. This way it only uses the surplus of the generation at your home, not grid power.
Here’s how Solar iBoost+ works for you:
Spare PV energy is automatically diverted to heat the water through the daytime. If necessary you can simply top this up using the built-in Boost or Timed Boost functions, alternatively top up using your usual heating system.
With an average of just 1kW of excess energy for 6 hours you could heat 150ltrs of water from 20° to 55°C, giving you plenty of free hot water.
