Having solar panels is the first step to saving money and becoming energy independent, youre on your way to saving lots of money and youre helping to save the planet. Now you need to use the energy your solar panels produce, I know it sounds silly but youre not in all the time so you actually waste a lot. OFGEM assume that youll actually only use 50% of the energy. The ImmerSUN is a clever device which tackles this problem and uses the energy to your advantage.
The ImmerSUN is a self-consumption device, designed to use the energy from your solar panels that is surplus to requirements and would otherwise be sent to the grid. 4EcoLtd, the company who manufacture the ImmerSUN claim it could save you up to £250 annually, but how does it work? It cleverly monitors what youre using in your home and what your solar panels are producing and then automatically uses the energy to save you more money. The ImmerSUN is designed so that it can manage up to three loads such as your hot water cylinder, electric heaters and underfloor heating.
Free Hot Water
The Energy Savings Trust claim that more than half the household fuel bill is spent on heating and hot water so its a perfect solution to heat your hot water tank with free solar electricity. The ImmerSUN does just that, when youre out at work and theres nothing to use the free electricity in your home, the ImmerSUN manages it and feeds your hot water tank so you have free hot water when youre home.
The ImmerSUN works in the same way with your other devices. Once it has finished heating your hot water tank and providing there is enough electricity from the solar panels, it will start supplying your secondary devices. You can add things such as storage heaters or underfloor heating so that by the time you finish work you have a nice warm house when you walk through the door. If you want your solar to work for you and give you the best it has to offer then the ImmerSUN is something you should consider having.
