2015 U.S. Energy Storage Summit on December 8th and 9th at Parc 55 in San Francisco, California
San Francisco, CA, USA, December 2, 2015 - JuiceBox Energy, a privately-held Silicon Valley company committed to providing safe, reliable, intelligent, and connected energy storage, is a sponsor for the 2015 U.S. Energy Storage Summit on December 8th and 9th at Parc 55 in San Francisco, California.
At the summit, JuiceBox Energy will be sharing information about the JuiceBox Energy Storage System now being installed nationwide to augment new and existing solar installations. The system is an automotive-grade, 8.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack with proprietary charge control and energy management system coupled to the Schneider XW+ 5.5kW inverter. The system is deployed throughout California, and in Hawaii, New York, and a growing number of states. There are 60 Certified Installers nationwide to support the roll-out.
"Augmenting a solar installation with the JuiceBox Energy Storage System improves overall system value through reduced grid reliance and optimal benefit from utility rate structures," said Greg Maguire, JuiceBox Energy Vice President. "We are excited to support GreenTechMedia's Energy Storage Summit and look forward to expanding our network of certified installers across the country."
The JuiceBox Energy Storage System's battery management and system controllers are designed for safe, reliable, long lasting control of the lithium-ion cells. It has redundant protection mechanisms to prevent over voltage, over current, under voltage, and over temperature conditions. The system is designed to support grid-tied, grid isolated in the event of grid failure, and off-grid configurations. Each configuration delivers more than 10 years or 4000 cycles of dedicated peak shifting, back-up power, energy efficiency, as well as enables participation in emerging transactive energy exchanges. A cellular gateway linked to a secure cloud-based repository enables remote monitoring, updates, and control. The JuiceBox Energy Storage System is housed in an indoor/outdoor UL-rated enclosure.
With the JuiceBox Energy Storage System, owners will benefit from:
· Keeping up with changing net metering rules, and the current regulatory and tax environment
· Peak-shifting excess solar production from daylight hours to nighttime
· Self-consumption to minimize or eliminate grid reliance
· Back-up power in emergencies
· 24/7 clean, renewable energy
· Real-time monitoring and control through a cellular network and web interface
