Schneider Electric is contracted to supply back up power for 3200 Ah Lithium Iron battery for California Solar Project

Iron Edison Battery Company, a Nickel Iron and Lithium Iron Phosphate battery system supplier for solar energy storage, selected Schneider Electric, the specialist in energy management and automation, to supply back up power as part of a solar installation in California.

This project utilizes Schneider’s Conext XW+ inverters in a system that will provide a residence with 61.2kW of continuous backup power and 166kW-hours of total energy storage capacity. and is a testament to the versatility and scalability of the Conext XW+ platform. The 61.2kW Conext XW+ Multi-cluster consists of nine Conext XW+6848 inverter/chargers configured to 120/208V 3-phase, which happens to be the same as the utility feeder for this 45,000 square foot residence. 

The Iron Edison LiFePO4 batteries are compatible with the custom charging profile provided by the Conext XW+ system.  The batteries are kept full and ready for a power outage in this AC coupled system. The grid-tie micro inverters allow PV to reduce the demand from the utility grid, and can produce power to the critical loads even after the grid goes down. 

This large residential project was designed by Manfred Thyssen, System Designer from OnTime Energy Solutions, a California based, family-owned and operated business.  OnTime has been providing Southern California residents with reliable HVAC and solar energy services for over 20 years.

Evan Vogel, Director of Marketing, Schneider Electric Solar Business said “We have seen off-grid solar make a difference in locations such as California, and know it really changes lives for the better in so many locations in developing nations where it replaces costly diesel generated energy.”
