Solahart PowerStore for Ballarat

Solar-smart electric water heater

Introducing Solahart PowerStore®, Australia’s first solar-smart electric water heater.

A Solahart PowerStore® system takes excess energy from your solar power system and uses it to gradually heat water, rather than allowing it to be fed back into the grid. Like a battery, it stores energy – but it’s more affordable.

Solahart PowerStore® is not a standalone water heater as it is designed to work with both new and existing solar power systems. Combining a Solahart PowerStore® system with a compatible Home Energy Management System (HEMS) will result in greater savings.

Key Features

Unlike conventional water heaters that only heat water using energy from the grid, a Solahart PowerStore® system takes excess power from your solar power system, and then uses it to heat water gradually throughout the day. Even on cloudy days, Solahart PowerStore® ensures you have a reliable supply of hot water by drawing the minimum power from the grid that is necessary.

Combining a Solahart PowerStore® system with a compatible Home Energy Management System (HEMS) will result in greater savings. Your Solahart dealer can put you in touch with a selected HEMS provider.

Adding HEMS to your Solahart PowerStore® system allows you to purchase energy when it is cheaper by shifting loads away from peak demand periods. It also helps predict solar energy generation from your solar power system by using seasonal and daily weather patterns, and decides on when it’s best to use high energy consuming devices such as air conditioners and pool pumps.

Conventional electric water heaters draw maximum power when their heating element is switched on. This usually happens in the morning and evening when solar panels are not fully productive, so hot water is mainly heated by power from the grid rather than using solar energy. PowerStore® monitors your electricity usage during the day and then diverts any excess solar power that is not being used by household appliances towards your water heater, rather than allowing it to be fed back into the grid.

TWO-STAGE WATER HEATING
A specially designed two-stage water heater ensures  quick recovery and reliable supply by maintaining a reserve of hot water even on cloudy days.

TRIPLE-BLADE HEATING UNITS
An innovative variable-power heating unit is designed to claw-back excess solar power rather than sending it back to the grid, so you can make the most of your solar energy.

SMART CONTROLS
Advanced tank temperature sensing and powerline communications technology allows intelligent home energy management
with no additional cabling requirements.

LARGE THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE
PowerStore® holds up to 315 litres of water which is large enough for families and equates to approximately 13kWh^ of thermal storage capacity for your excess solar power.

Solahart Solar Storage Packages

Australian households and businesses are increasingly embracing solar technology, with more than 3 million homes fitted with rooftop solar panels.

However, many homeowners are not harnessing the full potential of their solar power systems.

A large proportion of energy is generated when it’s not needed in the middle of the day. In this case, the excess energy is sent back to the grid for minimal financial return.

Connecting a home battery and a Solahart PowerStore® solar-smart electric water heater to your solar power system allows you to store your unused energy so you can use it when you need it (at night, on low-sunlight days, when utility rates are more expensive, or during blackouts).

Adding a Solahart Energy Management Unit helps you more actively manage how you consume energy throughout your home.
