Diversion load charge controllers are typically used with solar PV panels, wind generators and Hydro generator renewable energy products. They monitor the battery preventing it from overcharging by adding an additional load to the battery electronically. They require an external load, typically a resistive load bank, which dissipates the excess energy in the form of heat. Optional heating coils are available that can be installed in hot water heaters to dump the excess energy into the tank thereby heating the water.
