Charge Controllers

There are two main types of charge controllers (also called regulators):

  • MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking)
  • PWM (Pulse Width Modulation)

10 years ago a MPPT controller was costly compared to a PWM controller. Now very few people choose to use PWM.

Some MPPT controllers can divert surplus power to hot water. As Solar PV is very cheap these days we advise large solar PV (>5kW) with surplus diverted to your hot water tank.
