Is my home suitable for a Solar iBoost+?

I have on-site power generation. (Solar PV and wind are most common).

The distance between the water tank and utility meter is less than 30m.

Energy usage in the household is less than the energy generated and excess is exported to the grid.

I would like to reduce my energy bills, especially for expensive water heating.

You may be out for periods during the daytime and generate more than is needed to cover the standby of all your appliances OR even at home during the day but rarely consuming energy up to the peak output of the solar array or wind turbine.

Whenever you are exporting more than 100W you could be “dumping” that excess energy into your hot water tank and saving even more money. Even if you have an export meter the cost savings possible on water heating may be greater than the export rate paid by the electricity companies.

If you have invested in Solar PV for your home then you will already be aware that there are periods of “export,” when you can’t consume all the energy being generated by the array. This energy normally flows back to the grid seamlessly so you may not even be aware of it. If your home has hot water storage with an immersion heater then Solar iBoost+ can be installed and start saving you more money on heating bills in less than 1 hour!

Solar iBoost’s built in display means that you can watch your savings grow, simply press the display button to see Saved Today, Saved Yesterday, Saved 7 Days, Saved 28 Days and Total Saved readings.
