Solar Power Diverters

Adding a solar power diverter to your solar PV installation gives you the ability to create free hot water for your home; adding to the overall savings your solar PV installation can produce for you!

A typical standard Solar PV installation will use only 25% of the free energy generated, with the rest being exported back to the Grid.

A great way to improve your self-consumption of free solar generated electricity is by the adoption of a solar power diverter. The power diverter diverts any excess generated solar PV electricity to heat up your hot water immersion heater.* This system can help you save up to £200 per year giving a payback in under 2 years for the installations.

How does it work?


A power diverter measures the energy being generated by your solar PV against what is being consumed in your property and when the system detects excess energy being exported back to the grid, the power diverter will divert as much of this energy as possible to the immersion heater* so that the exported power is as near to zero as possible.
If the in-house electrical load increases e.g. when a kettle, washing machine or dishwasher is used, it will reduce the power diverted to the immersion heater*, ensuring only the excess power is used. Likewise if the in house electricity load decreases the power to the immersion heater will increase to ensure as much generated excess power as possible is used.
In addition, the power diverters come with boost, manual and timer override facilities to give you full control on how the immersion heater* is controlled.

What are the benefits?

By using the residual energy produced by your solar installation to create hot water, you can save money, as the energy used is free.
