A standard solar PV (photovoltaic) system does not directly heat water. Solar PV systems primarily generate electricity by converting sunlight into usable electrical energy. This electricity can be used to power various appliances, lighting, and other electrical devices in your home or business.
It is possible to install additional components to a Solar PV System, such as a diverter, to heat water from solar energy. For example, MyEnergi’s Eddi device is a diverter which uses surplus solar energy to heat water.
