UK Company Launches New Product That Uses Solar Power Day and Night
(London, United Kingdom). Engensa, a UK provider of solar and home energy solutions, Â announced the availability of Solar24, a new, innovative way to store solar energy and increase the financial returns of a solar PV system, eliminating the need for expensive batteries.
Engensaâ€™s first smart home energy product, Solar24 automatically diverts excess electricity produced by solar panels to a customerâ€™s hot water tank rather than exporting it to the grid. Typically, around 50% of home solar electricity is used on site, whilst the rest is exported back to the grid. Now, with Solar24, homeowners can use every hour of solar electricity they generate, saving money on heating as well as electricity bills, and so boost the financial returns of a solar system by up to an additional 10%*.
Initial customer reception has been fantastic. John Spens, who was part of the pilot test commented: â€œOn bright days, Solar24 heats our homeâ€™s hot water for free, using the excess solar power.â€ He added, â€œFrom spring to autumn we plan to turn off the central heating boiler altogether and use solar power to work the immersion heater at zero cost.â€
â€œSolar24 truly maximises the utility and potential of solar energy: it not only saves homeowners money, it will support the integration of solar energy into the national grid,â€ said Toby Ferenczi, Engensaâ€™s Chief Technology Officer. â€œBy further increasing the returns of solar PV, this will bring us closer to the point where solar energy can survive without subsidy.â€
Solar24 works with Engensaâ€™s proprietary 24/7 remote monitoring service, Solar24. Monitoring both production of electricity by the solar panels and consumption of electricity in the home, Solar24 provides real-time data to help track performance and reduce consumption.
Solar24 works in all homes with an immersion heater, with prices starting from Â£250. For more information visit: www.Engensa.com/Solar24.
