Get free hot water from your PV array with Solar iBoost+.

Marlecs innovative Solar iBoost+ enables you to automatically consume the excess energy generated at your home so you can just sit back and enjoy the extra savings!
Solar iBoost + will:
  • cut the cost of water heating in your home
  • maximise the use of the free solar energy generated at your property

Watch your savings grow.

If you have invested in Solar PV for your home then you will already be aware that there are periods of "export" when you can't consume all the energy being generated by the array. This energy normally flows back to the grid seamlessly so you may not even be aware of it.

If your home has hot water storage with an immersion element, then Solar iBoost+ can be installed and start saving you more money on heating bills in less than an hour.

Solar iBoost's built in display means that you can watch your savings grow, simply press the display button to see Saved Today, Saved Yesterday, Saved 7 Days, Saved 28 Days and Total Saved readings.

This is the principle of how it operates:

The Solar iBoost+ system detects when excess energy is being exported to the grid and measures it. The main unit receives this information from the Sender and releases the equivalent level of energy (less a small reserve) to the immersion element. As the exported levels adjust in line with home consumption,the Solar iBoost+ adjusts that levels delivered for water heating, ensuring that only excess energy is used.

Its as simple as 1,2,3:

  1. Using a single clamp installed at the household meter, the send transmits vital export energy information to the Solar iBoost wirelessly.
  2. Solar iBoost+ is activated when excess energy is available. It intelligently controls and adjusts the flow of energy to the immersion element in proportion with the fluctuating export levels.
  3. Water is heated over the course of the day using the free solar energy at your home.

Is your home suitable for a Solar iBoost?

  • you have on-site power generation.
  • the distance between the hot water cylinder and kWh meter is less than 30m.
  • energy usage in the household is less than the energy generated and excess is exported to the grid.
  • you would like to reduce your energy bills, especially for expensive water heating.

You may be out for periods of time during the daytime and generate more than is needed to cover the standby of all your appliances OR even at home during the day but rarely consume energy up to the peak output of the solar array.

Whenever you are exporting more than 100W, you could be "dumping" that excess energy into your hot water cylinder and saving even more money. Even if you have an export meter, the cost savings possible on water heating may be greater than the export rate paid by the electricity companies.

The Solar iBoost+ needs to be installed by an electrician.
