31 Water Heating Diversion Loads for Charge Controllers
Wind power and hydro power, as well as some solar (photovoltaic) charge
controllers require a diversion load to accept the power that is being produced
when the batteries are full.
A diversion load will accept and use that power to keep wind and hydroelectric
generators from overspeeding when the power produced is not needed by
With solar - wind - micro hydro charge controllers, like the Flexcharge NC25A and NCHC ,
Trace C - Series, Morningstar Tri-Star and others.
This will allow you to use energy which would otherwise be wasted when not
needed by the batteries.
These loads also work well with the older Burkhardt and Enermaxer diversion type
Water Heater Diversion Loads:
We carry water heating diversions loads in
12 volt which can be wired in series for higher
