Make the most of your PV System with EMMA

EMMAEnergyMyWay can help you optimise how you use the energy produced by your solar pv system by installing an EMMA (Energy and Micro Generation Manager).

The EMMA has been developed by Coolpower in Dublin and it optimises where the electricity you generate from either a sloar pv, wind turbine is used in your house so you get the maximum benefit which equates to a better return on your investment.  In simple terms it works by instead of exporting electricity to the grid for 3p / kw it will use it to heat your hot water (typically via an immersion heater) which you’d be paying 15p / kw.  EMMA can be retro fitted or more commonly installed at the same time you have your PV array installed.  The cost of an EMMA system is approximately £1,500 – £1,800 and payback around 6 years.
