The heating mode of a regenerative electric boiler in China’s rural area includes many problems such as the increase of heating cost, the high expense of government subsidies and tr investment cost, etc. Consequently, this paper proposes a new heating method that combines a regenerative electric boiler with distributed photo-voltaic power generation. The photovoltaic software PVsyst was used to simulate generating capacity, and a system-wide economic efficiency calculation model was established. Taking a family in Gaobeidian City as an example, a comparative analysis of the method before and after optimization was conducted. The results showed that the new heating method has good economics, environmental benefits and promotional value. This new rural household heating method is of great significance for realizing the rural household energy cleanness in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei metropolitan region, promoting the green and low-carbon development of rural energy, and realizing beautiful rural construction.
