How Arizona’s Biggest Utility Is Modeling the Customer of the Future in Its ‘Rate Design Laboratory’

Arizona Public Service doesn’t want to monopolize the rooftop solar market in its service territory, contrary to what some might think.

There’s been an enormous amount of debate in recent years around whether or not regulated utilities should be able to own and rate-base distributed energy resources (DERs). Supporters argue that utility programs can be structured in a way that expands access to solar and other customer-oriented technologies, while detractors argue that allowing a government-backed monopoly to enter the market will crush third-party competition.

JLM Energy debuts exclusive product features at Intersolar with partner Fronius 

Improving customer experience and saving money through solar plus energy storage and smart energy management software

SAN FRANCISCO – Today JLM Energy Founder and CEO Farid Dibachi, debuted exclusive features of the Energizr 200 grid synergistic renewable energy PLUS storage ecosystem for the home. Dibachi was joined by strategic partner, Fronius Director of Solar Energy Tristan Kreager.

This groundbreaking technology includes:

  • Patent-pending Symmetric DC Regulation (SDCR) technology reduces installation and operation cost by up to 50%.
  • A Fronius Primo inverter that connects directly to Wi-Fi, providing customers with immediate data on how much power they are consuming and how much power the solar system is producing.
  • Integration with the Honeywell Lyric smart thermostat so customers can remotely pre-cool their home during less expensive hours and avoid peak rates during the dinner hour.

JLM’s intuitive Measurz software platform maintains wireless communication with both the inverter and thermostat.

Energizr 200 is a holistic solution that works in harmony with solar power and the conventional grid to meet a predetermined budget set by the homeowner. A significant benefit of the system is that it provides customers the ability to manage self-supply and time-of-use scenarios by combining solar plus storage. This is especially important in states like California, Arizona, Hawaii and Nevada where net metering is going away and residential demand charges are being added.

Farid Dibachi said, “We’ve had a cohesive process working with Fronius. This strong partnership will continue to result in customer-focused technology advancements.”

Tristan Kreager said, “We are excited that Fronius was chosen to be part of this innovative solution. This highlights our commitment to open standards for integration into other systems and the flexibility of our inverters, providing home owners with holistic solutions.”

The Energizr 200 has a solar power capacity ranging from 3.8 kW to 8.2 kW (based on the Fronius Primo inverter) and energy storage capacity ranging from 5.2 kWh to 20.8 kWh in increments of 2.6 kWh.

Battery surge: The technology is here, but ‘demand rates’ might be key to promoting them

While some rooftop-solar energy advocates have opposed “demand rates” from Arizona utilities, other companies see the rates as an opportunity to launch a new market for household-battery and solar systems that benefit customers and the power grid.

The demand charges, which base monthly rates on a customer’s highest hour or half-hour of use, are luring companies that sell systems allowing solar customers to store excess power for their own use in batteries that are about the size of a rifle cabinet. Tabuchi Electric of Japan and JLM Energy of California say the technology can help users lower the demand rates, as well as reduce strain on the grid.

Arizona’s largest utility is trying to solve a big problem with solar-powered homes

By:  Susan Lisovicz

Imagine your local electric utility puts solar panels on your home, free of charge. Now imagine that same utility gives you an array of state-of-the-art energy-saving devices — from thermostats you can control from your phone to batteries that automatically charge any excess energy from those solar panels.
You can also turn off your appliances remotely and access cloud-based software designed to help you save money on energy. And you’ll get push alerts notifying you when to avoid using energy-draining appliances.
Arizona’s largest utility, the Arizona Public Service Electric Company (APS) is launching a pilot program to do just that for 75 homes in the greater Phoenix area, long known as the Valley of the Sun. The pilot program — which Yahoo Finance is reporting on exclusively— aims to save both the consumer and APS money during the most expensive part of power generation: peak demand in the evening, after the sun sets.
“When you’re looking at the app it will tell you how much it costs to run the dryer at five in the evening compared to 10 p.m.,” says Ellen Howe, vice president of marketing at JLM Energy, whose products are included in the study.
