Solahart PowerStore® Key Attributes

Enhance Your Solar Power Investment*

Unlike conventional water heaters that only heat water using energy from the grid, a Solahart PowerStore® system takes excess power from your solar power system, and then uses it to heat water gradually throughout the day. Even on cloudy days, Solahart PowerStore® ensures you have a reliable supply of hot water by drawing the minimum power from the grid that is necessary.

Combining a Solahart PowerStore® system with a compatible Home Energy Management System (HEMS) will result in greater savings. Your Solahart dealer can put you in touch with a selected HEMS provider.

Adding HEMS to your Solahart PowerStore® system allows you to purchase energy when it is cheaper by shifting loads away from peak demand periods. It also helps predict solar energy generation from your solar power system by using seasonal and daily weather patterns, and decides on when it’s best to use high energy consuming devices such as air conditioners and pool pumps.

Soak Up More Power From Your Solar Panels With Solahart Powerstore®

Introducing Solahart PowerStore®; Australia’s first solar-smart electric water heater.

Solahart PowerStore® works with a solar power system where together with a power meter, it captures excess solar energy and turns it into hot water, rather than allowing it to be sent back to the grid.

Like a battery, it stores energy - but it’s more affordable. And because a Solahart PowerStore® system minimises the amount of power you draw from the grid, it is also designed to reduce your household energy bills.

What Makes Solahart PowerStore® So Smart?


World leading smart technology developed, designed and built in Australia

TWO-STAGE WATER HEATING A specially designed two-stage water heater for a reliable supply of hot water.
TRIPLE-BLADE HEATING UNITS Innovative use of two triple blade variable power input heating units designed to claw back any excess solar power available.
SMART CONTROLS Intelligently sense when excess solar power is available and uses it to heat water when needed.
LARGE THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE
Around 13kWh^ of thermal storage capacity available for your excess solar power.


^ Typical thermal storage available for excess solar, based on a 17°C cold water temperature.

A Water Heater Like No Other

How Solahart PowerStore® works

Conventional electric water heaters use fixed power heating elements (typically 3.6kW or 4.8kW) to heat water. Solahart PowerStore®, on the other hand, uses a unique triple-blade heating unit design that provides variable power input heating between 0 and 3.6kW, which is perfect for matching the variable power delivered from excess solar power.

There are two of these heating units in a Solahart PowerStore® tank - one at the bottom, and one toward the top. The upper section of the tank is heated to 60°C regardless of the availability of excess solar power. This ensures there is hot water available even on cloudy days. When excess solar power is available, a Solahart PowerStore® system directs it to the top heating unit and then to the bottom based on the tank’s hot water content, and heating continues until the tank reaches its maximum temperature or there is no more excess solar power available.

  1. Two-stage water heating – for a reliable supply of hot water
  2. Smart controller – intelligent technology that captures excess solar power
  3. 10-year tank warranty# – for peace of mind
  4. 315L water heater – suitable for families
  5. Unique triple-blade heating units – claw-back any available excess solar power
  6. 4 sensors – for quick response to temperature changes and heating requirements
  7. Smart monitoring – real-time data sent to your device app (third-party supplied)
  8. Class Y enamel tank coating – for enhanced tank protection
  9. HEMS ready – compatible with a selected Home Energy Management System

Why Give Up Your Excess Solar Power?

Enhance your solar power investment ¹

Unlike conventional water heaters that heat water using energy from the grid, a Solahart PowerStore® system takes excess power from your solar power system and then uses this power to heat water gradually throughout the day.

Even on cloudy days, Solahart PowerStore® ensures you have a reliable supply of hot water by drawing the minimum power from the grid that is necessary.

Home Energy Management System

Combining a Solahart PowerStore® system with a compatible Home Energy Management System (HEMS) will result in greater savings. Your Solahart dealer can put you in touch with a selected HEMS provider.

Adding HEMS to your Solahart PowerStore® system allows you to purchase energy when it is cheaper by shifting loads away from peak demand periods. It also helps predict solar energy generation from your solar power system by using seasonal and daily weather patterns and decides on when it’s best to use high energy consuming devices such as air conditioners and pool pumps.
