Just had solar installed and have now an interest in what I can do and get out of it.
I've built a proportional control immersion heater divert board with feeds taken from standard emonTX.
I'm using a MEGA1280 for controlling outside 12V LED soffit downlighting with PIR's to activate fade up/down according to LDR light levels and time signal received from the emonbase. Also added on is a 433mhz OOK transmitter to send on/off signals to various Home Easy remote sockets for various functions but most proudly to control a dedicated beer fridge which gets chilled for free with spare solar power - it tastes so much nicer when chilled for free...
