HEAT WITH SOLAR
BE GREEN, BE #TEAMMIXERGY
HEAT FOR FREE WHEN THE SUN SHINES
- Heat with solar PV and/or solar thermal
- Mixergy PV tanks enable you to consume more of your own solar energy than any other cylinder on the market (use more, export less!)
- Shorten the payback period for your renewable technology investment
- Reduce your carbon footprint further with efficient water heating control
THE MIXERGY TANK
Mixergy’s top-up technology helps you use more of the solar energy you produce in two key ways:
1. On sunny days you are able to preempt surplus solar energy generation and choose to heat your tank to a lesser volume in the morning. This enables you to maximise potential solar energy consumption throughout the day, minimising exports to the grid.
2. On less sunny days, any short bursts of renewable energy will be converted into energy into usable hot water, rather than simply pre-heating the bottom of the tank.
CONVENTIONAL SOLAR TANKS
Conventional tanks heat all or nothing which can reduce the use of solar in two key ways:
1. On sunny days, surplus solar energy may be wasted, as the tank will have heated to 100% of total volume (ie. its full!) in the morning, leaving less water in the tank available to heat when the sun shines.
2. On less sunny days, short bursts of renewable energy may be under-utilised as the cylinder attempts to heat the entire volume of water. While this will still increase the overall water temperature, this water may be less usable (less hot) than if a smaller volume was heated to a higher temperature.
THE MIXERGY TANK
which mixergy tank do i need?
Solar PV and solar thermal systems are compatible with the Mixergy tank. You can build your perfect tank using our configuration builder.
If you have solar PV, you will need to build your tank with a dual source immersion. Select “PV ready” whether you are heating directly or indirectly.
If you have solar thermal, you will need to build your tank with a coil. Select “indirect Mixergy tank” if the only other heat source is electric, or add a “twin coil” if you are heating with gas.
