Stops sending free electricity back to the grid

published

The Power Diverter has greatly reduced leakage of power that I generate back to the grid for the power company to onwards sell. It boosts off the grid only when needed (which is rarely). During rainy periods in the middle of winter in Sydney it only used grid power for a few hours a day and that May with a big hot bath every night. If the sun is shining in winter then it heats the entire day’s worth of hot water using solar power only.

Does exactly what it says on the box, very capable

published

I bought this unit after experiencing difficulties with a catch power device where the catch continued to use energy from the grid (the green catch is not a diverter, and not compatible with all smart meters), costing me about $1 per day in hot water usage.

After the install of the PowerDiverter, it has been perfect, and is evidently a capable diverter. I now have no grid energy being used for my hot water system (unless I boost it of course, which I've done once in 6 months), making the absolute most from my solar system.

Fan of Powediverter. An honest manager and company. Talented installers.

published

Manager of this company sent me a replacement unit and installed it for free using his own installer after my solar panel installer botched the install and did not understand how to wire it up. Was a bit of a wait but understandable during covid and the solar panel installer tried to blame me. Lots of two and fro. Manager was always honest and sensible.
Highly recommend this company. The product does what it says on the packet. Now feeling great about using the sun’s energy for hot water.
Look out for their new electric car charger coming soon.

Bought the power diverter late 2019 and in just under 18 months the savings have paid for it. Outstanding quality product and easy company to deal with. Definitely recommend this product.

Got Solar? Get one of these!

This is a "no brainer"for anyone who owns solar! Purchased the Power Diverter approx four years ago, and it paid for itself within 12 months. Easy install, no maintenence, free hot water and no wasted power dribbling onto the grid. Why new solar installations are not automatically paired with a Powerdiverter is bizarre, as it is the perfect,money saving compliment to any system.

Awesome Product - Best Value for Money

published

We now have more hot water than before, without the expense. The timer function enables the unit to boost automatically overnight during off peak, which hardly happens as our solar system has more than enough grunt to boil the unit daily. We purchased our house with a brand new electrical hot water system installed, and couldn’t justify the cost of replacing the unit for a gas unit, plus paying for increased gas usage. Dan installed the unit and was very friendly throughout. This unit is money well spent, while supporting a local business, designing and manufacturing green technology.

brilliant product, everybody with solar should have one

published

i installed it myself (im an electrician) and very easy! for 3 months in winter and ive only boosted it 3 times.
simple to use and it has all the features of timers and boost button.
the flashing lights tell you how much solar is going to the hot water unit and the when it is hot enough it wont take excess solar and will export to the grid.

Excellent Service

published

Purchase was easy through email and direct phone contact with MD.
Courier delivery in 2 working days.
No significant issues encountered by the electrician during installation.
Some minor issues with wording in the manual these were dealt with immediately by phone.
The system is operating perfectly.
Too early to assess cost benefits, this purchase was from customer recommendation and desire to utilise excess solar capacity'.

Awesome Unit

Easy to Install, only had to buy an extra relay to switch for the controlled load, My usage for hot water heating has gone from 1300kwh per month to 300kwh, so well worth the purchase price .

Does exactly what it says on the tin!

published

The box is very well made and you can see the engineering inside when you take the cover off. Installation is a piece of cake, but when you do something silly like I did, the support was quick and outstanding. Great product and a great support behind that product.

Well over 12mths in and working great!

published

Our electrician found installation and instructions easy, although setting up the firmware was a challenge. Overcome this with a quick phone call to the Poweriverter team for them to talk me through it. Works exceptionally during summer with or 6.6kw solar system, but in winter our solar system doesn't have quite enough excess solar to power house and heat hot water... so a quick change to settings and it provides more boost. Great product and service!

December 3rd 2019 Update: After sales support

I needed some back up support re my meter box and these people were on top of it and quickly. Just a fantastic company to deal with.The Powerdiverter is an investment not an outlay
