SOLiC 200's TO BE WON by end of August

For south-facing installations, these type of immersion switchers must surely be one of the very best uses of solar PV? Our own forum section on Optimising Usage always has discussion of these types of products, and I know that some Microgeners have some impressive statistics on how much spare solar PV can be utilised.

They can be fitted by anyone competent with electrics, and are supposedly worth £200+. To enter the draw for a SOLiC 200, Follow This Link

Economy 10 tariff provides 6.9p/kWh off-peak import between 12am-5am, 1pm-4pm and 8pm-10pm; http://www.pvoutput.org/aggregate.jsp?id=21047&sid=18934&v=2&t=m on approx. 63% off-peak usage, 22% solar usage, and 15% peak-rate usage.
1,900kWh annually is exported, mostly in summer, on approx. 3,200kWh generation. Approx. 4,500kWh/year is imported, mostly for (a) winter and springtime off-peak Storage Heaters, and (b) off-peak hot water Immersion heating (which is “dumb”, i.e. not linked to the solar PV).
PV array is split East-West. Income is from Phase II 21p/kWh Feed-in-Tariff plus smart metered 3.2p/kWh Export Tariff.
