Electricity, heat and mobility from PV energy
THE PEACE OF MIND PACKAGE
A roof-mounted system owned by the Auer family in southern Germany is a classic example of an intelligent, complete solution. The 16-kWp photovoltaic system has a battery for storing energy, a Fronius Ohmpilot for heating water and a wallbox for intelligently charging an electric car. As a result, it provides the six-person household with maximum independence from rising electricity prices.
Heating water with solar energy
“Originally a no-go, it now makes perfect sense to heat water with solar energy,” reports Peter Maul from Hardy Barth GmbH. “The Fronius Ohmpilot makes it possible. It can be integrated into an existing photovoltaic system and connected to the existing heating element in the boiler.”
INCREASE IN HEAT PUMP SERVICE LIFE OF UP TO 20% AND MORE
Efficient storage of PV energy
The Fronius Energy Package has been integrated into the system to allow PV energy to be stored. During the day, solar power that is not required is efficiently saved in the Fronius Solar Battery. The Auer family can then use it to power their appliances and other loads during the evening and at night.
Producing your own fuel for your own car
The package is rounded off with the connection of a charging station from Hardy Barth for electric cars. “Because the Auer family are exploiting every opportunity from their PV system, they have managed to achieve an impressive self-sufficiency rate of up to 90%,” calculates Peter Maul.
“I wanted to optimise our PV system for my family. The Fronius Energy Package, Fronius Ohmpilot and wallbox mean we are as insulated as possible from rising electricity prices,” says system owner Josef Auer.
