Free Hot Water From Solar

Don’t waste another watt of your self-generated energy

eddi uses state-of-the-art technology to monitor PV performance and your energy consumption. This means that surplus power can always be used in the best way – heating your water with solar ready for when you need it most.

Eddi is Intelligent

Watch your energy go further with eddi

eddi easily connects into any existing micro-generation system. When added, eddi continually makes intelligent decisions every <1 second about how and where your energy generation is used around the home. eddi offers 6 key functions:

eddi diverts any excess solar or wind generation back into the property, to help maximise the consumption of your self-generated energy opposed to exporting out to the grid, in turn you can heat water with solar – for free!

eddi can heat your water using lower amounts of solar generation (<1kW) whereas heat pumps & EV chargers usually require around 1.4kW before they kick in, meaning eddi can trickle charge your hot water when the heat pump isn’t active.

eddi will switch between heat appliances dependent on the amount of generation and the heat of the water at any given time, and will select the most efficient way to keep the water heated.

eddi supports destratification which keeps hot water circulating around the tank, where traditionally hot water rises to the top of the tank. The secondary circulation function will help to circulate hot water around your property at peak times to ensure the hot water is more instant.

Use the myenergi app to adjust and optimise the settings of your eco-smart tech devices, to achieve maximum efficiency of your heat appliances and other smart devices. Set timers for your boiler through the myenergi app.

eddi is a future-proof, eco smart technology, and connects to the internet through WiFi or Ethernet, allowing it to fully integrate and work in harmony with other future smart-grid-ready products around the home, such as heat pumps, battery storage systems (such as libbi) and EV chargers (such as zappi)

So, why you need a solar diverter?

Did you know that hot showers, bath time and cleaning the dishes accounts for around 18% of a typical household’s energy use?

That’s a lot of electricity – and a lot of money!

Put the brain into your solar PV system

A solar photovoltaic (PV) system without an eddi is a like a car without a steering wheel or driver. Without an eddi, you have no control over where you want your self-generated energy to go, or how you want to use it.

Solar PV owners without an eddi waste large amounts of their self-generated energy by giving any unused electricity freely, or cheaply back to the grid.

eddi ensures that you are maximising the consumption of all your own self-generated solar / wind energy by diverting it to be used within your own property, such as to heat water or maximise the efficiency of a heat pump. The possibilities are endless!
