New power storage system allows homeowners to store and use energy from the grid, renewables and auxiliary generators
Dateline - August 27, 2012 - Rosewater Energy Group, a provider of next-generation energy storage products, enables environmentally conscious homeowners who value independence over the energy sources that power their life to harness every kilowatt of incoming power to the home—including power from "the grid", renewables and auxiliary generators—with the introduction of the Residential Energy Storage Hub.
The Residential Energy Storage Hub is an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that was designed to provide a variety of highly sought after energy storage solutions for homeowners. In addition to providing constant, reliable power output from virtually all power sources, including solar panels and wind turbines, the unit conditions incoming power and auxiliary power to help protect critical systems including valuable electronics and systems, including home security and "smart home" control technologies.
"Today's homeowner aspires to have complete autonomy when it comes to managing the energy systems within their home," said Joe Piccirilli, managing director for Rosewater Energy Group. "Whether homeowners want to maximize the potential of energy supplies from increasingly popular renewable energy sources, or utilize power from 'the grid', the Residential Energy Storage Hub affords them that luxury."
Homeowners seeking home energy freedom can now participate in demand response (DR) programs from their local utility company or let the powerful hub take them fully "off the grid" by utilizing renewable energy sources.
The system's impressive trustworthiness is secured by Axion Power advanced lead-carbon batteries, which ensure 5-20 times the cycle life of traditional lead-acid batteries found in other power supplies. The proprietary battery technology is both safe for home use (UL approved) and safe for mother nature, composed of over 99% recyclable components.
The hub acts as a powerful surge protector, assuring that the connected circuits will always see pure sine waves at 110 volts and 60 cycles—even when using solar energy, a capability normally perceived to be unreliable when used in conjunction with other power systems. The Residential Energy Storage Hub uses a 10kW/12kWh power quality conversion switchgear that utilizes UPS technology and corrects many common power quality problems that can occur with power from the grid, renewables and back-up generators.
The system is easily configured through the use of the Energy Router , allowing the simple integration of on-board UPS monitoring functions: solar energy production and usage, utility smart grid interface requirements and other features. This functionality provides homeowners monitoring capabilities from both in-home and remote access systems—a highly requested functionality that emerging trends suggest could be a game changer in home energy storage.
The Residential Energy Storage Hub will be available in September 2012. It will be introduced to the professional installation community at CEDIA Expo 2012.
