centrosolar2009 since the legislature has increased the tariff for the internal use of solar power. Respond to the increasing demand Centrosolar Combined with a new product that allows for maximum use of self-generated electricity: a hot water heat pump combined with a photovoltaic system. To develop the new self-consumption solution Centrosolar has concluded a cooperation agreement with Glen Dimplex Germany GmbH, which with its Division Dimplex's leading manufacturers of heat pumps.

A heat pump water heater uses the available heat in the ambient air as an energy source for the central hot water heating up 60 ° C. The device works with about 3 / 4 environmental and energy about 1 / 4 stream that is needed to operate the heat pump water heater.

This current component provides the new product combining the solar system. Core of the system is a smart energy manager that controls the interaction of the photovoltaic system and the heat pump. The energy manager controls the power consumption of the system and ensures that the required power is obtained in sunny hours. Centrosolar this one is the complete photovoltaic system Cenpac 3.x consisting of 16 modules with a total output of over 3 kW peak. The heat generated by the clever combination drive the photovoltaic system with the heat pump water heater promises high efficiency and sustainability. More than 50% of the required electricity for hot water is produced by the solar system environmentally friendly self. The solar power replaces power, enabling an independent water heating in households. The well-insulated hot water tank in the heat pump is also used for energy storage. This increases the proportion of self-produced flow, which is not fed into the public network, significantly. The plant operator easily achieved in this way a self-consumption rate far above 30% and benefited from the maximum feed-in tariff.
