Solar product distributor, Segen, has announced Earthwise Products’ solar immersion controller is now for sale.

The SOLiC 200, originally launched by Earthwise Products in November, diverts excess solar energy to the immersion heater before it is exported to the grid.

The SOLiC 200 is claimed to be able to operate with a very low minimum threshold to allow loss to the grid. This has been achieved by it reacting to any changes in electrical production or use in the home by checking itself 20 times a second – making the SOLiC 200 one of the most efficient devices on the market, states Segen.

The SOLiC 200 is manufactured in the UK and complies with CE and British Standards. The ruggedised unit has been engineered to last the life of a solar installation (25 years) and includes a 10-year return to base replacement guarantee.

Iain McRitchie, managing director of Earthwise Products, comments, “We are thrilled that Segen, a recognised marketing-leading solar wholesaler, has chosen to stock the SOLiC 200. In doing so, Segen is giving its installers the opportunity to upsell to existing customers, while helping homeowners maximise PV investments and giving the social housing sector a new tool to combat fuel poverty.”

McRitchie continues, “Segen will be stocking the SOLiC 200 as part of its continuing commitment to providing installers with all of their solar.”
