Immersun energy management in Sheffield
Immersun Energy Management Puts You in Control
Energy and Micro-Generator Manager for Solar PV and Wind & Water Turbines
Did you know… 50-70% of the electricity produced by your renewable energy micro-generator may be superfluous to your immediate requirements and so is automatically exported to the grid with little financial benefit for you?
Immersun solves this. By constantly monitoring, in real-time, how much electricity your solar panels or wind turbine is producing, and how much electricity you are using, Immersun spots any surplus energy being produced. Immersun then intelligently decides whether to store it (as hot water or space heating) or export it. The result for you is substantial savings on your energy bills, optimal income from feed-in tariffs, export tariffs and energy savings and an even smaller carbon footprint.
benefits to the customer are derived from two key points:
- 40% of the average energy use in a domestic dwelling is hot water production
- Up to 70% of electricity produced by a microgenerator is 'lost' to the grid due to a miss-match in supply and demand profiles - i.e. at times your generator is producing more energy than you are using. For larger systems - such as on turbines on farms on windy days - even more energy may be being lost to the grid.
Immersun redirects this otherwise-exported electricity to immediate uses within the building instead of allowing it to be exported. For instance, it sends the surplus electricity to heat your water NOW - while surplus electricity is available - rather than allowing it to be exported, only for you to have to buy-in electricity from the grid later in the day.
Immersun increases the value of over half the output of your generator by using it in the household or farm rather than allowing it be exported to the grid.
What is the immerSUN?
The immerSUN is our 'state of the art' energy saving device. It helps you to self-consume the green energy produced by your microgeneration system, and is compatible with all renewable generation technologies, including solar PV, wind turbine and hydro systems.
The device is essentially an automatic power controller that diverts surplus power to a designated load, normally a hot water heater, to save energy and minimise your utility bills.
What does the immerSUN do?
The immerSUN, via a CT sensor, monitors power imported from, and exported to, the grid. Power that is normally exported is surplus power generated by your PV or other microgen system.
The immerSUN intercepts this surplus power, and diverts this to the water heater or other load, thus preventing it from being exported.
How does diverting this energy benefit me?
Surplus energy that is exported back to the grid can be as high as 80% of the total that is generated in the first place. The immerSUN can help you use up to 100% of your microgenerated energy, which is completely free!
How does the immerSUN save me money?
The immerSUN allows you to store energy as hot water even when you are out. Later on in the day you are able to use this free hot water in the home.
How much can the immerSUN save me?
By allowing users to self-consume up to 100% of green energy, the immerSUN can save you up to £250 annually - more if you use electricity to heat your water and home! The higher the price you pay for your energy, be it electricity, gas or oil, the greater the savings will be from your immerSUN.
Does having an immerSUN affect my Feed-in Tariff?
No -You are still eligible for the FIT that has been agreed with you by your provider. You are currently paid both for generation and export, which is deemed to be 50% of the generation total.
You will still receive your FIT even if you use 100% of your microgen surplus that would otherwise be exported! (unless you have a 'smart' meter fitted that monitors the export)
Are there any benefits other than financial, to having an immerSUN fitted?
Maximising your usage of renewable energy will help to reduce your reliance on grid power. The usage of green electricity will help reduce your carbon footprint and therefore make your property more environmentally friendly.
Who will benefit the most from having an immerSUN installed?
To reap the biggest financial rewards you ideally need to have a hot water storage tank with an electric immersion fitted. By directing surplus energy to the immersion element, you can utilise up to 100% of all self-generated green energy – even when you´re not at home!
Can I view my savings on the immerSUN?
The immerSUN is fitted with a clear graphical LCD display, allowing the following information to be viewed.
- Grid import/export in kW
- Diverted energy in kW
- Savings made both in monetary value and kWh
What will be my likely Return on Investment?
Your ROI will be between 2-5 years depending on individual circumstances. This will of course be dependent on what fuel you normally use to heat your water.
What compliance standards does the immerSUN device follow?
The immerSUN has full CE product approval.
