SOLAR IBOOST

What is it?

Solar iboost is a great compliment for your Solar PV array. The Solar iBoost solution uses any unused energy you are generating from your PV array, to heat the water in your tank, or to put in another way,  you will cut the cost of your water heating bills with the payback usually within the first year. It’s also a non-intrusive installation and wireless. You only need to have a hot water tank with an immersion heater in your home for you to use Solar iBoost, which allows you to get even more savings from your Solar PV investment.

In the summer time you will generate a significant amount of ‘free’ hot water and in winter Solar iBoost will use excess PV energy generation to preheat your water, so you will still be saving throughout the year. If you have a larger than average size households, and / or with those with large water hot water demands, with upsized hot water tanks this again will reduce the costs as the water will be preheated and therefore save on energy costs to heat the water.


Solar iboost is growing in popularity as latest technology advances can deliver extremely positive results: 

 Significantly reduces your water heating bills 

 Makes your investment into Solar PV investment (and Thermal) work harder as you use the ‘free capacity’ you are generating but not using or exporting.

 Doesn’t affect the generation element of the Feed in Tariff payments.

 The export tariff is likely to be unaffected for most UK households as most household don’t use their 50% quote and as export is capped at 50% of the total generation, so if you are using the other 50% then it’s still free 

 As the export rate for PV generated electricity is £0.0477 and the average price you changed from you energy provider is £0.12, you really   want to consume as much of your generated energy as possible. Even if you consumed 100% of your energy, then you would still be better off.

 Reduce the amount of time your boiler is in use.

 The Solar iBoost is very compact and user friendly.

 Fits neatly and discreetly in your airing cupboard where you can check the screen for the functions and savings.


Solar iBoost Savings and Benefits:

 Reduce your water heating bills. 

 Pays for itself within 1 to 2 years. 

 Makes your PV investment work harder as you use the ‘free capacity’ you are generating but not using or exporting. 

 It doesn’t affect the generation element of the Feed in Tariff payments. 

 The export tariff is likely to be unaffected for most UK households as export is capped at 50% of the total generation, so if you are using the other 50% then it’s still free

 Reduce the amount of time your boiler is in use. As you will have learnt with PV, you want to use appliances during time when you are generating. Likewise, with Solar iBoost, you would optimise your system by reducing the amount of “on” time for your boiler. We suggest keeping it off during the daytime especially if you are not home and on in the evening. This means the boiler only tops us already warmed water. 

 Compact and user friendly. 

 Fits neatly and discreetly in your airing cupboard where you can check the screen for the functions and savings.
