JLM Energy Inc. and Maui Solar Project are offering a practical new energy appliance that changes the way renewable power is collected, stored and used.
The device, called “Energizr,” unites renewable energy sources (wind and PV) with the power grid and energy storage in a single device.
It also incorporates seamless integration with a generator, and is designed to provide constant renewable energy access, even during power outages.
During an outage, Energizr provides stored energy to a home while simultaneously allowing the PV system to recharge its batteries. This mean’s Hawaiʻi PV customers can now net meter and use the grid as a backup, and get access to their renewable energy source directly on-site.
“There are 51,000 solar systems in Hawaiʻi and 99% will shut down in the event of grid failure,” said Josh Porter, president of the Maui Solar Project. “Energizr is the only technology that allows homeowners to have complete energy security. Maui Solar Project has been working in concert with JLM’s technology for over a year. We understand this technology and how it applies to our environment. We are deploying these systems today.”
