How big are your batches? A 1500w element would definitely suffice for 5 gal batches. It may not be the quickest but it would work.
To follow up: search for "flash boiler" if you can do gas/propane.

Otherwise 120v electric will do it for a 5 gal batch.

You could still use a water heater to fill your system with hot water. Starting out at 120-140 degrees would save a lot of time waiting for the system to get up to temp. But, as mentioned, you wouldn't be able to run this water through a filtration system like RO because the hot temperatures would destroy the membrane.
