A UK firm has launched a solar system that can generate energy 24 hours a day. Engensa, the UK’s fastest growing provider of solar and home energy solutions, has announced the availability of Solar24, an innovative way to store solar energy. It can harness energy day and night which increases the financial returns of a solar PV system, while eliminating the need for costly batteries.
 
Engensa’s first smart home energy product, Solar24 automatically diverts excess electricity produced by solar panels to a customer’s hot water tank rather than exporting it to the grid. Typically, around 50 per cent of home solar electricity is used on site, whilst the rest is exported back to the grid. 

Now, with Solar24, homeowners can use every hour of solar electricity they generate, saving money on heating as well as electricity bills, while boosting the financial returns of a solar system by up to an additional 10 per cent. Engensa said the system solves the problem of providing affordable solar energy for homeowners.

Toby Ferenczi, Engensa’s chief technology officer, said: “Solar24 truly maximises the utility and potential of solar energy: it not only saves homeowners money, it will support the integration of solar energy into the national grid. By further increasing the returns of solar PV, this will bring us closer to the point where solar energy can survive without subsidy.”
