I'm considering installing an array of PV solar panels on my roof. These are the kind that make electricity, not the ones that heat water.
I've noticed there's at least a couple companies selling self-contained solar powered filter pump kits (ie Lorentz, SunRay) that include both panels and a pump. I'm trying to understand if there is some advantage to isolating power generation for the pool pump into its own system with these special-purpose components, vs. just having one large array for all the home's electrical needs and continuing to use a regular pool pump.
Anyone have any experiences either way?
I live in a very high cost electricity area so solar in general makes sense for sure. Just not sure as to the best way to handle the pool equipment vs the rest of the house.
