Off-grid PV solar for domestic HW
I am planning a small off-grid home and would like to send all surplus energy from the 4.8 kw solar array to a standard electric water heater, probably of 60 or 80 gallon capacity. In effect, it would serve as an additional "battery" once the main battery bank is fully charged. Does anyone have any suggestions or experience on how this might be done in a fairly simple and reliable fashion?
