Through initial development with the University of Brighton, we have taken on a new product called Powerdiverter which provides free hot water from the excess electricity produced by solar PV rather than send it back to the grid. This is done through the existing emersion heater and can be fitted retrospectively to any solar PV system as long as you have a water storage tank. The system typically retails for £399 inc VAT plus fitting of £65 inc VAT. This system pays for itself within 1 to 3 years or between £14 to £34 per month on hot water bills. The Powerdiverter is fully designed and manufactured in the Newhaven, East Sussex.
Key benefits of Power Diverter;
Provides free hot water by using the excess energy from your solar PV system (this doesn't impact on the payment you receive for energy returned to the grid which is 50% of what you generate irrespective of what you use personally)
Quick and easy to install (just 20 minutes)
Simple to use with boost button to top up hot water when required
Great Return On Investment (ROI) and payback of just 1 to 3 years
