Leadership of the Hoopa Valley Tribe is taking the next step in environmental stewardship and enhancing sovereignty by investing in JLM Energy’s solar+storage solution that will make it possible to rely on stored energy during peak times.
“JLM’s Phazr is the most innovative solution available today. It will enhance our independence and save money. More importantly, we are doing the right thing for the environment and future generations,” said tribal chairman Ryan Jackson.
Hoopa is incorporating a carport solar array combined with JLM Energy’s new MicroStorage product Phazr to virtually eliminate their annual electricity bill for the tribe’s community center. The 26,000 square-foot facility includes indoor basketball courts and an outdoor swimming pool.
Earlier this week, EnSync issued a press release announcing it installed solar+storage on the Chemehuevi tribe’s community center.
Phazr is mounted seamlessly behind the solar panel, making installation simple and virtually cost-free. Because Phazr couples a battery pack directly to a corresponding solar panel, it enables the dual supply of power from solar to batteries and the grid simultaneously.
As solar power diminishes late in the day, the Phazr system will discharge the battery while simultaneously delivering the remaining solar power directly to the building. This concurrent electricity flow is unique to JLM’s patent-pending technology.
The project will be financed by JLM Energy and will generate savings amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars over the life of the system.
Nate Newsom, JLM Energy’s VP of enterprise sales, said, “Phazr is a plug-and-play solution. It is suitable for retrofits and new projects. We see a big opportunity to transform tribal operations to greater levels of sustainability through continued collaboration.”
