Solar Diversion A Waste Of Energy For Hot Water & Charging EV

Solar Diversion A Waste Of Energy For Hot Water & Charging EV

Video by Nicolas Raimo via YouTube

Charge your EV from your PV a waste of time? Have a hot water tank and your using your solar energy to heat it when you have a heat pump? It may be time to reconsider these products once marketed to a mass of customers on government FIT payments. Modern installed solar systems don’t benefit from government incentives anymore to payback on these systems is all about increasing the payback you can make like changing how you think about solar export and import with Octopus energy you can import at 7.5p and export at 15p giving a 7.5p profit margin on your energy this for me says we should be exporting all we can during the day!
