JLM Energy Inc. and Maui Solar Project have developed a new energy option for Hawaiʻi’s hurricane season.

Energizr combines renewable energy, the grid and energy storage in one energy appliance, so renewable energy will be available on-site during a power outage. Energizr is an intelligent system designed to provide constant access to energy.

Because virtually all solar installations will not deliver power when the utility grid is down, during an outage, Energizr delivers stored power to the household and allows the PV solar system to re-supply the batteries.

“There are 51,000 solar systems in Hawaiʻi and 99% will shut down in the event of grid failure,” said Josh Porter, president of Maui Solar Project. “The state has been informed of an increased risk of hurricanes and power outages this season. Energizr allows homeowners to have complete energy security. As we move into more severe climate change, this technology becomes a necessity.”


Energizr provides:

  • Uninterrupted power during grid outages
  • The ability for your existing grid-tied PV Solar system to operate during an outage
  • Simple and Intuitive mobile device-based monitoring system
  • Compact, elegant unit that will be a showpiece in your home
  • Affordable piece of mind in an uncertain world

Maui Solar Project is an authorized dealer and installer of JLM Energy products in Hawaiʻi.
