Apollo GEM Solar PV Hot Water Generation and Load Management System
Apollo GEM can divert surplus generated PV or wind power which would have been exported to the grid to produce hot water, run heaters, power a battery charger or any other appliance. It has two outputs, allowing two heaters or other appliances to be connected to the system.
Apollo GEM can work in two distinct modes; variable powermode and threshold power mode.
In variable power mode the system accurately monitors the power being imported or exported to the property and diverts sufficient power into a hot water or other heater in order to keep the exported power to as near zero as possible whilst at the same time ensuring that no additional power is ever imported to supply the heater. Priority is always given to the energy demands of the household appliances and only surplus energy that would have otherwise been exported is stored in the hot water system.
In threshold power mode Apollo GEM uses a programmable threshold to determine when enough surplus power is available from the micro generation system to power a connected appliance. This mode would be used typically to power non-heating appliances that cannot use a variable power supply. Again, priority is always given to the energy demands of other household appliances. For hot water heating the Apollo GEM system uses a standard electric water element.
