Convert to electric or not?

So now that our solar panels are operational, and that we seem to have quite a bit of excess energy production, I’m considering electric baseboard heaters. Qmark makes one with oil much like those mobile heaters.

I’m still doing feasibility analysis, qmark’s models range between 200 and 300 per unit but I’m more concerned electric panel / wiring upgrade that we may need to do.

Rule of thumb is to multiply square footage of the room by 10 to determine the wattage of the heater.

If anyone has done a similar conversion I’d like to hear your thoughts. Please comment.
