Iron Edison Battery Company has provided its Lithium Iron battery for electric utility giant Xcel Energy to demonstrate the possibilities of behind-the-meter solar energy storage for its residential customers.

The Iron Edison battery is installed at SolarTAC (Technology Acceleration Center), a 74-acre facility in Aurora, Colo., which is the largest outdoor test facility for solar technologies in the United States. (for more on SolarTac, watch this video: https://youtu.be/wLJBYu8B_HM)

The Iron Edison Lithium Iron battery is charged by a 9 kW rooftop solar array on a zero-energy home designed by a team of University of Colorado students. According to Xcel Energy, the battery will be tested to support appliances, HVAC, lighting and electric vehicle charging under various scenarios. (for more on the zero-energy home, watch this video: https://youtu.be/CCG2P0R5yhc)

The Iron Edison Lithium Iron battery has 20 kWh of total storage capacity, which is enough energy to take an entire home off-the-grid. Lithium Iron (LiFePO4) is the safest lithium-ion chemistry for home use. Iron Edison’s battery includes an integrated battery management system (BMS) and battery disconnect for an added layer of safety.

Solar and battery power is inverted by a Schneider Electric Conext XW+ 5548 inverter, which can also push excess solar energy to the grid or store it on-site in the battery. A Schneider Electric Conext 600V 80A charge controller regulates current from the rooftop array into the battery. The entire system can be monitored for performance via an online web portal.
