SOLMAN SOLAR GENERATOR FAQ

Can the SolMan Power my home
Sort of, the big question that always has to be answered is how much power do you need? Also, most homes are designed with a split phase electrical system and the SolMan 3000 and Mini are both single phase systems. For a larger home either the SolMan 3000 or Mini are capable of powering critical loads such as refrigerator, computers, cell phones, lights that you would plug in to an extension cord, etc. The SolMan 3000 is capable of powering up to 9,000 watt hours per day, depending on your location and amount of solar gain you get.

Most backup power solutions are permanently installed next to whatever property needs on-demand electricity. This is as true for stationary diesel generators as it is for solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on rooftops.

Hybrid Energy Systems Overview

For most homeowners and businesses, diesel generators are the “go-to” solution for emergency backup power. However, diesel generators suffer from several drawbacks, including:

  • Polluting: they’re incredibly dirty since they rely on toxic petrochemicals to operate. 22lbs of CO2 emissions are produced for every gallon of diesel used.
  • Inefficient: many diesel generators are installed based on “max” power requirements, leading to unnecessary waste…especially true when energy demand is low.
  • Noisy: when a diesel generator is running, everyone nearby can hear (and smell) it.
  • Expensive: diesel generators are expensive since they need to be refilled often and depending on how much they run or sit idle, maintenance is required.

Fortunately, there is now a more efficient and environmentally friendly way to ensure reliable backup power for your home or business. This alternative to diesel generators is quieter, more efficient and offers to be the most affordable solution on the market.

Introducing the Powr2 Hybrid Energy System

DIESEL GENERATORS RUNNING WITHOUT A HYBRID ENERGY SYSTEM:

More often than not, diesel generators spend a lot of their service life running inefficiently on low loads creating unnecessary pollution and fuel waste. The first graph shows a typical asymmetric load profile of a power generator running 24 hrs.

  • The diesel generator will be operating between 6% and 75% of its capacity.
  • It runs inefficiently for 60% of the time.
  • Diesel generators consume more fuel per kWh, compared to when operating between 60-80% of capacity.

Understandably, diesel generators are often over specified, meaning they frequently run at less than 25% capacity. Typically, the same diesel generator providing the higher daytime power, is continually running 24/7 to provide a lower overnight load. Consuming large amounts of diesel fuel overnight, unnecessarily.The second graph shows the diesel generator load profile where the Hybrid Energy System takes over the night time low loads and switches the generator off saving fuel, protecting the generator from wet stacking, providing silent periods and reducing emissions.

DIESEL GENERATORS RUNNING WITH A HYBRID ENERGY SYSTEM

The Hybrid Energy System Node Energy Management Software monitors the diesel generator and load status, autonomously turning the generator on and off according to predetermined load or time parameters significantly reducing generator noise, emissions, fuel waste and operational costs.

SCENARIO 1: TIMER SETTINGS The Hybrid Energy System controls the operation of the diesel generator. The power generator runs constantly through the day and then the HES turns the diesel generator off at night, running the site silently on the stored energy. Example: 6am – 6pm on generator, and 6pm – 6am HES stored energy.

SCENARIO 2: LOAD SENSING The Hybrid Energy System automatically switches off the diesel generator when it is running at low loads and powers the load with stored energy. Or, the HES is the primary power source for long periods of low load and switches the generator on for higher load demands; an example of this would be oilfield well head operation. The Hybrid Energy System re-charges when the diesel generator is running for higher loads and thus fuel consumption is optimized.

SCENARIO 3: CONSTANT LOW LOAD The HES is the primary power source, and only switches on the diesel generator to re-charge the batteries. The diesel generator runs at a much higher load when charging the Hybrid Energy System, improving fuel efficiency.

POWR2 ECM | Energy Control Module:

The Powr2 ECM takes hybrid power system control to a whole new level. With a 7″ touch screen and intuitive user interface, this incredibly versatile controller is suitable for use in the most demanding and complex systems. Fitted as standard equipment to every Powr2 Hybrid Energy System, the Powr2 ECM retrieves data from all connected devices including inverters, batteries, diesel gensets, PV and more; displays it on the screen and uses the data to inform which source of energy to use and which loads to prioritize.

  • Adaptable to almost any project according to your requirements.
  • Deep Control of the connected systems: Inverters, Genset, PV, Grid, Batteries, Meters, Sensors, etc.
  • Multiple layers of business logic to maximize efficiency and cost savings while ensuring the longest lifetime of connected components.
  • Control loads by kWh, kVA, Time, Pollution Levels and many other metrics to ensure energy is never wasted or used outside of contracted terms.
  • The system can be operated and monitored via a web server and the POWR2 PORTAL web platform.

TRULY SILENT POWER

Whether it’s a construction site noise ordinance or a high profile sports event, POWR2 Hybrid Energy Systems will give you the noise and emission free periods you didn’t realize you could have.

POWR2 SILENT POWER CASE STUDIES: GOLF TOURNAMENT

At a recent PGA tournament, Hybrid Energy Systems were used with power generators to power concession stands and other requirements right on the golf course. Attendees, organizers and neighbors were able to enjoy the tournament without generator noise and emissions throughout the day, while the generator kicked back in at night to replenish the stored energy in the HES overnight.

URBAN CONSTRUCTION SITE

A New York City noise ordinance specified no overnight or weekend generator power on a construction site. One of our clients was able to offer the solution using a POWR2 Hybrid Energy System to run all the overnight and weekend loads for lighting and security etc.. solely from stored energy.
Powr2 Environmental Benefits

POWRBANK HYBRID ENERGY SYSTEMS ACHIEVE WHAT TIER 4 DOESN'T

Although Tier 4 engines do a great job of capturing the NOx and PM10 particles that are harmful to humans, CO2 still goes unchecked. Every gallon of diesel burned produces about 22 lbs of CO2. With the millions of gallons of diesel used every day, this adds up to a major negative impact on our environment.

Integration of Powr2 Hybrid Energy Systems gives you the opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 80% when compared to running a diesel generator alone.

Powr2 Environmental Benefits

A 300kVA Tier 4 Final diesel generator running 24/7 could easily consume 300 gallons of diesel a day. If 50% of this fuel was conserved by the use of Hybrid Energy Systems, significant savings can be made both financially and in natural resources.

Installed Battery Backup Systems Overview

Many homeowners and businesses go solar to protect themselves from blackouts. The thinking goes that having emergency backup power will allow them to keep the lights on in case of a grid failure.

But the reality is very different.

Most solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are grid-tied and automatically power off during blackouts. This is a safety feature designed to protect utility workers in the field. But even with this feature disabled, you’ll still be in the dark once the sun goes down and your solar panels stop working.

However, it’s now possible to design your PV system so that you always have reliable power – day and night – even when the rest of the grid goes down.

All you need is an on-site battery backup system to get started.

How Our Battery Backup Systems Work

Our installed battery storage solutions integrate seamlessly with new or existing solar PV installations:

  • When the sun is shining, your solar panels top up your batteries, which provides daytime backup power for your appliances.
  • When your solar panels stop working at night, you draw the energy you need from your battery backup system.

This basic process works the same whether your solar installation is connected to the grid or not. However, if your PV system is:

  • Off-grid, your solar panels and batteries become a self-contained energy solution that doesn’t involve utility providers or monthly electricity bills.
  • Grid-connected, you benefit from an extra layer of protection since you can always draw power from whichever source is cheapest and most abundant – your panels, batteries, or the utility network. However, this option requires using a licensed professional who has experience working with high-voltage grid infrastructure.

What Are the Main Advantages of Installed Battery Backup Systems?

Customers enjoy several benefits when using our backup battery technology, including:

1. Energy Security

Enjoy peace of mind knowing you always have access to emergency backup power – even if the rest of the

  • Connect with the outside world through your router
  • Stay in touch with loved ones by charging phones and laptop
  • Save lives by powering essential medical devices

2. Energy Independence

Most solar customers stay connected to the grid. But adding on-site battery storage gives you the option of decoupling from your utility provider forever. As an independent power producer, you won’t have any more electricity bills or grid outages to worry about.

3. Human Health and Environment

Going solar can reduce your reliance on grid electricity. But using utility power at night means you’re still polluting (albeit indirectly). Adding a battery backup system is the cheapest way to power your energy needs – while reducing your carbon footprint to zero.
