SOLAR HEAT PUMPS We offer two types of solar heat pumps, grid-tied heat pumps and off-grid heat pumps.
Grid-tied heat pumps operate primarily on solar energy and use the utility grid as needed. Typically, energy from solar panels is used during sunny periods and energy from the utility grid is used to fill the gap during non-sunny periods. This heat pump is only autonomous during sunny periods.
Off-grid heat pumps are powered by batteries. They work the same as grid-tied models, the only difference being that they cannot use energy from the utility grid to fill the energy gap. However, knowing that they are self-sufficient as long as the batteries have power to supply, they can be used even in the event of a utility grid failure, which is not the case with grid-tied heat pumps.
