Solar advice: Run high-consumption devices during the day!

If you have installed solar panels on your roof, your garage, your carport or at ground level on your property, you will require less electricity from the power grid. Finish the waste of precious energy!

This washer-dryer contains a heat pump.

Those appliances in the household with the highest electricity demand are the dish washer, the washing machine, the tumble dryer and the kitchen stove. These can easily be equipped with timer switches, so that they run during the day, when the solar generator on the roof is producing a lot of output, which can be used directly.

The stove might be a challenge

A high-wattage stove might be a challenge for PV by itself. In this case, a large storage unit (solar battery) can be used as a buffer for short-term load peaks. Because it is not just the number of kilowatt hours on the roof that has to be sufficient, but also the currents made available at short notice. This determines if a storage unit is designed for capacity (in kilowatt hours) or output (in kilowatts). (HS)
