How does free hot water for your family sound?
Right now, with energy prices going through the roof, we’re betting it sounds pretty good!
Well if you’ve got a home solar system, free hot water is just sitting there waiting for you, and all it takes is a small box from Catch Power.
What is Catch Power?
Catch Power is the most advanced solar hot water system on the planet.
And what’s surprising is how simple it all works!
With no complex wiring issues to deal with, no outside interference, and no additional bulky pipes needed to install the box, Catch Power is non-intrusive, straightforward to set up, and easy to use.
When added to your solar PV system, this simple device can help get the most out of your home solar energy, reducing electricity bills even further.
OkY, so how do I get free hot water?
For the millions of homeowners in Australia who have solar panels, energy bills have been reduced tremendously, saving thousands of dollars for the average family.
But for those without a home battery to store this energy, any electricity made through the solar panels must be used as it’s made, or it’s sent back into the grid to be used by someone else.
With a Catch Power box, instead of excess energy being sent to the grid, it’s diverted to your water tank, heating the water for use when you need it.
Catch Power automatically takes all the information about your energy consumption and uses an adaptive learning algorithm to decide the most efficient way to use your solar power. By looking at how much energy your PV system generates, when you most use that energy and how long you use it for, Catch determines how and when to heat your water tank.
All it takes is one small device and you can have free hot water, day and night, all year round, saving you thousands of dollars in the long term.
Are there different options?
Yes! The Catch System comes in two options, Blue and Green. Both devices are small and discreet with a built-in touchpad for easy selection.
The Green Catch system is designed for those people who don’t have an internet connection. It is still a smart device, however, it only uses onboard firmware to learn how best to manage your solar and hot water.
Blue Catch is the most advanced solar hot water system on the planet, using the internet to determine energy usage and monitor your solar system. It even checks the weather forecast to see how much electricity the solar panels will be likely to produce in the coming days!
Is Catch Power an Australian company?
Totally Aussie – through and through!
Founded in 2016, Catch Power creators Jason and Scott first realised how important feed-in tariffs were to solar power users when the Government decreased them from 60 cents to 6 cents overnight.
With hot water being the single biggest culprit when it comes to energy use in the home, the door was open for something different to help with energy consumption.
And that’s when Catch Power was born.
Designed and built to handle the tough Australian weather, all Catch Power products are designed, engineered, and manufactured in New South Wales, and where possible all components are sourced locally.
Got solar panels? Get Catch Power for free hot water!
South Australia has the highest rate for electricity in Australia so it’s probably the most important issue to most households
The sting has been taken out for many by installing solar panels, reducing their energy bills dramatically, but it can still improve.
A solar battery works wonders but still remains outside the budget of many residential homes.
A Catch Power hot water box is the next best thing and at only a fraction of the cost of a solar battery.
It literally only takes 45 minutes to install, is compatible with all existing solar PV systems, and, as a rule of thumb, will provide 98% of your hot water needs with a 5 kW system!
