Electric Hot Water heating is typically 7kWh per day in a NZ home, and makes up 27% of an average NZ home's electricity consumption. By managing the temperature, the hot water cylinder can be used like a huge battery. The minimum temperature is 40C at the bottom, and the cylinder can increase to 73C. Paladin manages the minimum temperature so you don't get cold showers, and manages Legionnaires protection.
Examples of Paladin in Action
Site 1, residential: See the consumption drop as the solar production increases from 9am. The odd high consumption items (induction cooktop, kettle, hair dryer etc) means there is a little consumption every hour when the solar production is insufficient - but the is no export to the grid.
Before & After Paladin Installation
Here is a typical installation demonstrating how Paladin works in the real world.
Site 2, holiday home: Consumption drops to zero as solar production increases. The evening peak is heating and off-peak Electric Vehicle charging. Consumption drops top zero and there is no power exported.
