Eddi - Solar Power Diverter
An Efficient Way Of Living
Is Eddi Right For My Home?
The Eddi is a new and reliable power diverter that works by using any excess energy your solar pv generates and redirecting it to heat your water tank. By providing your household with hot water and heating its puts otherwise wasted energy to use and helps to make every day that little bit easier. Eddi is compatible with the Tesla Powerwall 2, which makes the power diverter a no brainer for smart homeowners. Eddi also has the added benefit of being tailored so that it observes your systems surplus power and adjusts the voltage accordingly so that it matches the heater load.
How Will Eddi Help Me To Be Self-sufficient?
Becoming self-sufficient is an objective everybody should be focusing on achieving in 2020. Unless you have an alternative solution such as battery storage or an immersion controller, your unused but paid for solar energy is transferred back to the grid. Eddi stops things like this from happening by allowing you to rely less on the grid, with a 95% power self-consumption compared to 25% without Eddi. This is because Eddi utilizes the spare energy your system produces so you can benefit from everything your solar is making rather than letting it go to waste.
Control Your iBoost Remotely
MyEnergi Monitoring App
Introducing the MyEnergi monitoring app and hub taking renewables to another level of intelligence. MyEnergi app and hub devices work in sync, giving you the flexibility to control and monitor your Eddi iBoost as well as any other MyEnergi renewables you might have at home including the Zappi EV charger. Not only does it let you keep an eye on your products, but it allows you to manually boost your Eddi without any physical contact, set your Eddi's hot water and heating in advance and allows any Zappi owners to switch between their EV’s charging modes.
One of the benefits of this smart device is it keeps all your MyEnergi products like the Eddi up to date with the most advanced features. The hub device works to provide your MyEnergi products with internet service and transform them into intelligent. The hub is essential in order for you to be able to use the monitoring app.

Ensuring all our customers are looked after and they walk away 100% satisfied with their installation.
Eddi is a solar power diverter for use with grid-tied PV or wind turbine systems. Excess energy from the micro-generation system is used to heat water or rooms rather than exporting it to the grid.
How Eddi works
A grid current sensor (supplied) simply clips around the incoming supply cable. This sensor is used to monitor excess power and Eddi automatically adjusts the voltage to the heater load, thereby consuming the surplus power. A self-powered wireless sensor is available separately. An internal expansion interface provides a means to add and expansion module to enable various functions such as auto switching from daytime and night-time supply, heat pump interfacing for legionella control and temperature sensing. Eddi utilises myenergi’s proprietary VariSineTM technology to ensure compliance with worldwide power grid standards, for a reliable solar power diverter.
