The SOLiC 200
automatically converts energy generated by your existing PV panels into hot water by intelligently diverting unused power to the immersion heater before it’s exported to the national grid.
Simple to use and maintenance free, the SOLiC 200 is self contained, easy to install and can save you hundreds of pounds over the course of a year.
The SOLiC 200 when registered within 28 days of installation, has a 10-year return-to-base warranty. The unit can be installed quickly and easily by a qualified electrician—typically in under one hour—without the need for plumbing alterations.
Frequently Asked Questions
Solar Power Diverters
A solar power diverter is a device that optimizes the use of solar-generated electricity by directing excess energy to a specific purpose, such as heating water or space, rather than exporting it back to the grid.
Solar power diverters monitor the surplus electricity generated by solar panels and direct it to a connected appliance or heating system, typically through an immersion heater or heating element.
Solar diverters are commonly used with water heaters, immersion heaters, or heating systems. They can also be connected to other high-consumption appliances like electric storage heaters.
Solar power diverters maximize the self-consumption of solar energy, reduce electricity bills, and lower carbon emissions by using excess solar power for heating purposes.
No, solar power diverters are compatible with most standard electric water heaters or immersion heaters. However, it’s essential to check compatibility with your specific heater.
Yes, some solar power diverters can work in conjunction with battery storage systems to ensure efficient utilization of surplus solar energy.
The cost-effectiveness of a solar power diverter depends on factors like your solar panel system size, energy consumption patterns, and local electricity rates. In many cases, they offer a good return on investment.
Installation may require electrical knowledge, so it’s recommended to have a qualified electrician install the diverter to ensure safety and compliance with local electrical codes.
Most solar power diverters are compatible with standard solar PV systems. However, it’s advisable to check compatibility with your specific solar inverter and panel setup.
