Iron Edison Battery Company, a Nickel Iron and Lithium Iron Phosphate battery system supplier for solar energy storage, selected Schneider Electric to supply back up power as part of a solar installation in California.
This project utilizes Schneider's Conext XW+ inverters in a system that will provide a residence with 61.2kW of continuous backup power and 166kW-hours of total energy storage capacity. The 61.2kW Conext XW+ Multi-cluster consists of nine Conext XW+6848 inverter/chargers configured to 120/208V 3-phase, which happens to be the same as the utility feeder for this 45,000 square foot residence.
The Iron Edison LiFePO4 batteries are compatible with the custom charging profile provided by the Conext XW+ system. The batteries are kept full and ready for a power outage in this AC coupled system. The grid-tie micro inverters are designed to allow PV to reduce the demand from the utility grid, and can produce power to the critical loads even after the grid goes down.
This large residential project was designed by Manfred Thyssen, System Designer from OnTime Energy Solutions, a California based, family-owned and operated business. OnTime has been providing Southern California residents with reliable HVAC and solar energy services for over 20 years.
"My decision to partner with Schneider Electric on this project was a simple one," said Thyssen. "I have had a successful relationship with great customer service for over ten years with various divisions of Schneider Electric on several large residential and commercial projects. Schneider Electric has a great off-the-shelf product that could be expanded to fit the needs and demands of this project. A project of this scale will have certain challenges, but luckily the support and engineering team at Schneider are always available and ready to provide exceptional service."
