THERE IS A DIFFERENCE. Conventional or basic solar hot water has been available for decades through thermal energy. Essentially water moves through a thermal collector on a roof, heats up via thermal energy and is stored in a tank either on the roof or on the ground utile it is ready to be used.
The future is solar power hot water.
No sun? then the conventional solar hot water system requires an energy-intensive booster, in the form of gas or electricity to heat the water. This was a reasonable solution a decade or more ago. But things have gotten a lot smarter since.
Discover true energy efficient solar power hot water by Bosch and supplied by PSW Energy (Perth Solar Warehouse). Photovoltaic collectors (solar panels) convert light energy from the sun into electric energy. The electric energy is then used to convert cold water into warm water via the energy efficient (600W) heat pump by Bosch and stored until a time the hot water is ready to be utilised. Available are two methods to combine the Bosch Compress 3000 hot water heat pump operation in sync with a PSW Energy advanced solar energy system.
The Bosch Compress 3000 hot water heat pump is equipped with a preset timer as per the above video. This timer is set to operate the heat pump from the middle of the day when the sun is at its peak, the period of which the solar energy system would also be working at its peak, on average.

Incorporate smart control hardware in conjunction with the energy supply, solar supply, and the hot water system to ensure the Bosch Compress 3000 hot water heat pump only operates when the solar power begins to be exported to the grid. A result which ensures power to heat water, from the sun, is only utilised when it is not required within the home or facility.
Additional Cost: $1000 – $1500 avg
The Bosch Compress 3000 hot water heat pump alone uses up to 65% less energy than old electric type storage hot water heaters. For the times that the 270L hot water storage capacity fails to suffice, instantaneous hot water can be converted via an economical 1.65kW electric booster element. Energy efficient it uses 31% less energy than 2.4kW booster elements incorporated within most conventional solar hot water systems.
Whats the ultimate advantage in selecting a solar power hot water system by PSW Energy vs a conventional solar hot water system of the past? When the water is hot and the sun is still shining, you’re now powering your home with free energy from the sun for even greater savings.
