The POWERSTATION 247 PLUS from Concept by US Corporation is an enhancement of the standard POWERSTATION 247 unit. It is a complete and fully integrated, plug and play, scalable solar energy usage and storage system with built-in battery storage. Electricity can be produced anywhere the sun shines.
Made in the U.S., POWERSTATION 247 PLUS was developed for the new or existing solar/PV customer who chooses not to be dependent on traditional energy supplies generated by polluting fossil fuels. It allows small facilities to use environmentally friendly solar energy every day and during power outages.
After charging the battery bank from solar panels, the POWERSTATION 247 system provides energy for the user’s consumption. If the solar panels have generated overcapacity the electricity is fed into the public grid. In the evening or in case of a power outage, the POWERSTATION 247 automatically switches to battery energy/ emergency power.
During the night, the battery maintains an individual set percentage of its energy for emergency power outages. If the battery capacity is insufficient and energy is needed, then electricity can be obtained from the grid.
The POWERSTATION 247 PLUS is equipped with an additional modular AC to DC power converter to feed energy of external AC-sources (external generators or second grid connection) directly into the battery circuit. The rectifier set is integrated into the battery enclosure and may be equipped with two to four rectifier modules, 1.75 kW charge power for each module. The AC source is connected on screw terminals in the battery enclosure. The batteries can be charged with turbines and generators for completely off-grid operation.
The UL certified solar energy usage and storage system comes in three sizes: 5 kW, 10 kW or 15 kW; all have the same battery storage capacity of 17.28 kWh. The freestanding cabinet is easy to install and use. The POWERSTATION 247 integrates up to three hybrid inverters, solar MPP-trackers, charge controller and lithium-ion batteries, and all necessary field wiring terminals and disconnect switches.
Concept by US offers a financing program that eliminates up-front payment as a barrier to using solar energy directly. This loan program offers competitive pricing, fast approvals, and a simple process to achieve energy independence. Installation of the system reduces and can actually eliminate a small company’s monthly electricity bill. Financing will be provided by the Cardiff Bank, through the concept by U.S. partner, Solar Water, Inc., based in Glendale, CA.
