INTELLIGENT WATER HEATING WITH THE FRONIUS OHMPILOT
The Fronius Ohmpilot is the first choice for PV system owners who want to use their solar power to heat water. Thanks to the consumption regulator, the solar power can be used even more efficiently for heating hot water. Surplus solar energy which is otherwise fed into the public grid, goes, via the Fronius Ohmpilot, directly to loads such as a heating element, towel radiator or infrared heating. Even small surpluses are consumed with the heating element in a continuously variable manner and not fed into the grid.
The PV energy is thus used in the best possible way in the household and the self-consumption rate can be increased to up to 100 percent. This not only affects the return on investment of the PV system, but also the energy costs. In the summer months, the hot water consumption can be almost entirely covered by solar energy.ä The primary heating source usually remains completely switched off, which also increases the service life of the heating system.
