Can solar cells power a heat pump?

Together with a heat pump, you get a high dividend on your solar package on an annual basis. Many times the energy consumption of the heat pump is halved or even neutralized when you supplement with solar cells. Here are two examples:

Newly built house

A newly built house of approx. 200 m2 with the exhaust air heat pump NIBE F730 and a solar cell package of 8 kW.

The heat pump's annual electricity consumption of approx. 8000 kWh is reduced by approx. 8000 kWh with the solar cell package, which, taken together, completely neutralizes the heat pump's consumption.

Older house

An older house with an energy consumption for heat and hot water of approx. 30,000 kWh.

After installation of the ground source heat pump NIBE S1255 and an 8 kW solar cell package, the combined consumption is neutralized.
