In this episode, I show the hybrid solar hot water controller that I installed. This is an item that is shown in several Youtube videos on a channel called Nrodge1. This person markets the device thru his eBay store called Techluck. At the time of this posting, he sells the device for $259.
I have this device connected to three Canadian Solar 315 watt solar panels. The total amount I spent on this project is about $1024.
I did a lot of research into both PV Solar as well as Thermal Solar before deciding to go with this device.
The enclosure box I have this installed in was purchased on Amazon.com. Here are the details:
