The dream of a homeowner or entrepreneur: complete self-sufficiency from the energy provider.
Thanks to falling prices for photovoltaic systems, the latest developments in the storage market and particularly energy-efficient construction methods, this scenario is becoming increasingly likely. In addition, the guaranteed feed-in tariffs for self-generated solar energy are steadily decreasing and will disappear altogether in the not too distant future. Both of these factors, together with rising electricity prices, make it particularly efficient to operate one’s own solar system if the electricity generated is also consumed by the company itself.
In the future, therefore, the insulation and thus the energy efficiency values of a house will be important on the one hand. And secondly, to have enough electrical devices that consume the electricity generated. As well as storage facilities that allow electricity to be called upon when it is needed. In a private household, mostly in the evening and in winter – at times when the sun is not shining.
Technological development is aimed precisely at this: Low-energy and passive houses reduce the overall energy demand, and sophisticated, affordable storage systems are already storing solar power generated during the day. In addition, more and more consumer appliances can be controlled digitally – via an app, even while on the move – so that they consume electricity when it is actually generated.
This is where our electric panel storage heaters come in. Thanks to their
firebrick, they are particularly efficient and reheat even without electricity once they reach the set temperature. And with our controller technology, you control all radiators smartly via app from anywhere.
Many important steps towards self-sufficient energy supply have already been taken. But much is also still under development. That’s why it’s important to think about tomorrow’s possibilities when planning today.
Buildings that are still heated with oil or gas today, for example, can be supplemented with electric heating in the short term and completely converted in the long term. But even today you can supply heat to an entire building exclusively with electric heaters via a photovoltaic system. Below are a few key data:
Due to the extremely increased prices for gas and oil, there are hardly any serious differences to heating with electricity. You can additionally minimize your costs through feed-in tariffs, the savings of a classic heating system for oil or gas as well as the missing maintenance costs like chimney sweep or wearing parts in the heating system. Furthermore, optimized heating behavior and good building insulation can further reduce costs.
All Thermotec electric heaters can be easily combined with a photovoltaic system.
Use solar energy to bring the warmth into your home!
E-heat is the future
The self-sufficient photovoltaic-powered heating system consists of a combination of surface storage heaters with other innovative heating methods. Developing visions for the future is a big part of Thermotec’s philosophy.
