Erin Clark, JLM's chief operating officer said, "Wholesale Solar's expertise will empower resellers and end-users to reap the full benefits and value of JLM Energy's innovative energy storage products. With utilities changing the value of energy and shifting higher cost electricity to periods when the sun isn't shining, adding energy storage to solar systems is becoming increasingly important. We're extremely pleased to have Wholesale Solar as a distribution partner to enable our installer network easy access to our products as part of a one-stop-shop for all their solar component requirements."

Allie Coleman, CEO of Wholesale Solar said, "We are proud to offer JLM's solutions to our dealer network. JLM has highly efficient and cost-effective solutions that make incorporating energy storage with solar simple and approachable. Phazr is driving costs down and spurring the rapid adoption of energy storage in key markets."

Developed by JLM Energy, Phazr is an innovative distributed energy storage platform. Phazr's plug-and-play design dramatically simplifies installation and lowers engineering and ongoing maintenance costs over traditional energy storage systems; helping to lower the overall cost for adding energy storage to solar systems and increasing system value. Phazrs are controlled by JLM's Measurz software, which directs the batteries to solve for grid applications such as Time of Use arbitrage, demand shaving, solar self-consumption, and other applications to provide significant value to solar owners and investors.
