Provides home or small business (store or restaurant) owners an All-in-One NetZero Energy Systems solution that typically includes 2 or more generation sources, such as solar photovoltaic and battery energy storage. Flexible renewable energy systems provide homeowners with secure, sustainable, cost-effective energy management control savings, EV charging and back-up power when the grid is down (with an EV V2G option).
Provides small to medium commercial/industrial centers, factories, small communities, office buildings, malls, etc. an All-in-One (30kW – 1.5MW) NetZero Energy Systems solution that typically includes 3 or more generation sources, such as solar photovoltaic, battery energy storage, and possibly small (VAWT) wind in the right location, and diesel or natural gas back-up generators. Our INDe UL-9540 certified Microgrid System is shipped to you pre-wired and assembled except for the battery modules, which are shipped separately per DOT requirements and must be installed on-site.
Now with integrated EV charging –NZE also offers (UL approved) EV V2G, OpenADR and utility demand response (DR) capable hardware and software options. Producing flexible Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to create a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) with energy management cost savings and ensuring uninterrupted power during blackout events or natural disasters.
HUBe Microgrid Systems can operate in two modes (Grid-Tied and Microgrid), and perform the following functions to maximize the value of the asset to the end customer:
Grid-Tied Demand Charge Management: For customers with utility demand charges, the system can be used to offset peak facilities demand charges by reducing the load drawn at the utility meter by deploying energy from the battery during known, pre-set peak usage periods.
Grid-Tied Time-of-Use Energy Arbitrage (TOU): For customers with Time-of-Use tariffs, the system can store less expensive off-peak energy, either from the grid or from on-site solar, into the battery and then deploy that energy from the battery during more expensive peak rate times to effectively lower total energy cost.
Grid-Tied Solar Self-Consumption: In markets that do not allow net metering of solar, the system can store PV generation that is in excess of site load, preventing the back-feeding PV power to the grid.
Microgrid Mode: The system will form a stable microgrid as long as there is enough battery capacity to do so. If normally grid-tied, the system will automatically switch over to microgrid mode upon grid failure and provide backup power to supported loads. If deployed to a location with no power grid or an unreliable grid, the system can also be set to operate in microgrid mode for continuous islanded operation. A suitably sized and paired external source of energy (such as solar panels or a backup generator) is required to recharge the batteries for extended microgrid operation.
Virtual Power Plant (VPP), high energy consumption campuses with distributed energy resources (DER), community owned utilities, industrial plants, universities, and military bases. These facilities typically include 3 or more generation sources, such as solar PV, wind turbines, BES, and diesel or natural gas generators with cost optimization. All utilizing switchgear and load features integrated by microgrid system controllers.
