Solaredge Home Hot Water Controller & Home Load Controller
SolarEdge continues to innovate with the release of their new Home Load Controller and Home Hot Water Controller. These smart energy management devices allow homeowners to optimise their energy consumption even further and meet their constantly evolving energy needs now and into the future. These two new inclusions to their complete smart home solution join their industry leading Smart Panels, Inverters, EV chargers, Home Batteries and Optimisers.
The Home Hot Water Controller diverts excess solar energy to heat water, offering cost-effective thermal energy storage for your customers. The SolarEdge Home Load Controller is a wireless device that is designed to optimise energy consumption by controlling heavy-load home appliances. Let’s study the details of each product and how they can benefit your business.
SolarEdge Home Hot Water Controller
The new model of Home Hot Water Controller has undergone a complete redesign for enhanced reliability, faster energy control and smarter scheduling.
Offering this new technology to your customers can open doors to new upsell opportunities for your solar business. It provides a cost-effective alternative to traditional Li-ion batteries for thermal energy storage. SolarEdge Water Controller takes a different approach to energy storage. Instead of converting surplus solar energy into chemical energy, it uses this excess energy to heat water. This helps to lower your customers’ electricity bills by increasing their solar self-consumption.
SolarEdge Hot Water Controller Integrates seamlessly with the entire SolarEdge Home system, providing a unified solution for warranty, support, and training, simplifying logistics and operations.
It also automatically adjusts the power supplied to the water heater according to the available PV power, with a maximum capacity of 4.8kW.
It utilises wireless communication via the SolarEdge Home Network to establish a connection with the inverter, which reduces the need for extensive wiring, labour, and installation faults.
In addition, it comes equipped with a built-in energy meter to monitor the power consumption of the hot water system. Installation is straightforward, as it can be easily wall-mounted. It’s suitable for powering purely resistive loads only and it has an optional temperature sensor available for optimised heating.
SolarEdge Home Load Controller
The Home Hot Water Controller is designed to manage heavy-load appliances in the home, such as electric water heaters, EV chargers, and pool pumps. It helps distribute the available solar energy to these appliances intelligently and using excess energy that would otherwise be lost.
Control Energy Use from a single app
Once installed, both the hot water device and the load controller seamlessly integrate with the mySolarEdge App, allowing homeowners to manage their water heating and electrical loads directly from their smartphones. With user-friendly modes, they can manually control these systems, set timers, or establish schedules. Additionally, surplus solar energy can be intelligently directed to the hot water system and other appliances, ensuring optimal utilisation of available solar power. Furthermore, homeowners can schedule and monitor their solar energy production, battery storage (if applicable), grid services (if connected), and solar self-consumption through the mySolarEdge App. The SolarEdge Home operating system best calculates energy usage and savings, according to personal preference while considering external factors such as weather events and utility rates.
