Western Cape - Brooklyn - Centralised Hot Water

This comprehensive Renewable Solution will provide both metered solar PV electricity and heat pump driven hot water to a block of flats with 29 units, over a 10 year contract

In this hybrid system, the heat pumps provide dedicated water heating and the Solar PV offsets the power consumed by the heat pumps and the building as a whole.

With this solution we were able to reduce the energy required for water heating by more than 70%, and achieve a net cost-reduction of Water Heating from 14c to 3c per litre.
