JLM Energy Energizr 100

Energizr 100 is the complete energy storage and energy management solution for on-grid and off-grid residential applications. The system brings together the four major components of an energy system into a single package: utility power, solar power, a backup generator, and energy storage. Energizr reduces a home’s dependency on the utility company by storing solar power during the day to power the home at night. The system also provides emergency backup power and keeps solar systems productive during power outages.

energizr-controlsHow It Works

Energizr is uniquely capable of bringing the following different sources of electrical energy together… utility power, solar power, a JLM Energy Energizr Controls backup generator and energy storage.

Energizr 100 is designed to be connected to a special load panel to run part or all the electrical loads in a home. A single unit is capable of running most of the appliances, lights, etc. in a well-designed 1500 to 2500 square foot home. Multiple units (up to 4) may be installed to fulfill the requirements of a larger home.

When power utility (grid) is available, the system generally works to pass the grid through to the loads inside a home. At the same time, the system ensures that the batteries are fully charged and ready to supply the electrical loads in case there is an outage.

A regular solar or wind system loses its ability to generate energy when there is an outage. Energizr eliminated this problem. In case of an outage, Energizr ensures that the solar or wind systems continue to generate at full capacity.

In cases where the renewable sources simply cannot keep up with the home’s electrical consumption, Energizr can seamlessly interface with a local generator.


Modes of Operation

Power Flow – Standby Mode

Battery is charged either by renewable sources or from the grid, and used to power the majority of household appliances. If Net Metering is ON, then excess energy created by the renewable sources is sold back to the grid. In an outage all appliances are powered by the battery until service is restored.

Power Flow – Grid Charging

Battery is charged by the Grid, and powers the majority of household appliances. In an outage the battery takes over and powers the appliances until grid power is restored.

Power Flow – Renewable Charging

Battery is charged by renewable sources, and is used to power the majority of household appliances. If during night time (or a storm etc.) the battery gets low, the generator starts and recharges the battery, then turns off again. Allowing the battery to continue providing energy as required.

Power Flow – Generator Charging

Battery powers the majority of household appliances, and is charged by a generator when the output gets low. It then turns back off when not required.

Battery Technology

Energy storage has become increasingly essential for smart energy management in homes, industrial, and commercial buildings. With this recent increase in popularity, JLM Energy is here to educate the public on the different types of batteries available on the market.

When searching for the ideal battery, there are three main factors that should come into the decision-making process. These are: safety, performance, and environmental impact.

When it comes to safety, LiFePO4 will not overheat, whereas Lithium Ion have a history of overheating. Some Lithium Ion batteries come with warnings telling you not to exceed temperatures of 65 degrees Celsius—when overheated, the shell of the battery will expand. This makes Lithium Ion batteries prone to cracking, leaking, and even exploding.

Regarding performance, you want to invest in something that is dependable and long-lasting. LiFePO4 batteries can produce between 2000-5000 cycles, which is significantly more than their Lithium Ion counterparts.

With LiFePO4 there are no hazardous materials such as cobalt and chromium. Without these materials it is easier to manage and safely dispose once the time comes to replace your batteries, making them an environmentally-friendly option.

Installation

Wiring Energizr

This section describes the requirements and recommendations for wiring Energizr. All wiring should meet all local codes and standards and be performed by qualified personnel such as a licensed electrician.

Wire Routing

Before connecting any wires, determine all wire routes to and from Energizr.

Typical routing scenarios are:

• AC input wiring from the main AC panel to Energizr.
• AC input wiring from a generator (optional) to Energizr.
• DC input wiring from the batteries to Energizr.
• AC output wiring from Energizr to the AC sub-panel or to dedicated circuits.
• AC Renewables wiring from Grid-tied inverters to the Energizr.
• Battery Temperature Sensor cable from Energizr to the batteries.
• Remote Control cable (optional) to Energizr.
• Ground wiring from Energizr to an external grounding.

Mounting Energizr

Energizr base can reach a temperature up to 90°C (194°F), and it is recommended that it should be mounted on a noncombustible surface*. This surface and the mounting hardware must also be capable of supporting at least twice the weight of Energizr. To meet regulatory requirements, the Energizr Series must be mounted using the included single-stud mounting hardware.
