You are already paying to heat water in your home, the innovative Solar Hybrid Hot Water Controller will save money on your power bill by supplementing your hot water heater’s power usage with free solar power.

The Solar Hybrid Hot Water Controller allows you to use a standard domestic Hot Water Heater with standard “24V” Solar Panels starting with a “48V” configuration ( 2 x “24V” ). Works equally well with “12V” panels. Many different configurations of “12V” panels are possible, starting at “48V” minimum. You do not have to change the heating element!

You don’t have to change the existing heating element, make any plumbing modifications, or drain the tank. No 2nd tank. No Pumps. No chance of leaks from this modification.

The Solar Hybrid Hot Water Controller has a CPU specially programmed for Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and continually adjusts during the day to get the most power from the Solar Panels. MPPT is especially needed in the mornings and afternoons to keep the most power pumping into the heating element at all times.
