Lithium Nickel-Cobalt Manganese (NCM) batteries.
Yes. By adding multiple iCANs throughout a home, you will scale up the total energy storage capacity and output power.
Generally, there is a breaker for each circuit branch of your home. The maximum load of the breaker is defined already. The total power of the iCANs installed under one circuit branch can't exceed the maximum load of the breaker. For example, the maximum load of the breaker is 1750W, the power of iCAN is 750W, and no more than two iCANs can be installed under this circuit branch.
iCAN uses the same type of Lithium-ion battery technology that is widely used in today's laptops and other portable consumer electronic devices. Our product has been tested for safety by OSHA's Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) listed to the following standards:
FCC Part 15 Class B - Unintentional radiators
UL1741 (Inverter) - Inverters ,converters, controllers and interconnection system equipment for use with distributed energy resources
UL1642 (Batteries) - Standard for safety lithium batteries
FCC Part 15 Subpart C (Zigbee and 2.4G Wifi) - Intention radiators
FCC Part 15 Subpart E (5G Wifi) - Unlicensed nation information infrastructure devices
FCC Part 18 (Wireless charger) - Industrial, scientific, and medical equipment
Utilities are moving to a time-based pricing strategy known as a Time-Of-Use (TOU) rate plan. Instead of charging a single flat rate, rates fluctuate based on the time of day. iCAN allows you to store electricity when it's cheapest and use it later when the rates are highest. With iCAN, homeowners can cut their peak demand and electricity costs.
Your actual savings are closely related with your real conditions, depending on your location, price gap between peak hours and off-peak hours and if you are using renewable energy such as solar power. Some rate plans have more obvious savings, such as PG&E EV-A and SDG&E EV TOU 2. You can get the real time statistics from our App PeakShaver.
iCAN is a fully integrated plug and play energy storage system. It is quick and easy to install, doesn't require any modification or rewiring to your home power system. You simply plug it into any 90Vac-130Vac outlet and set it up with our app PeakShaver on your smart phone.
1. An energy storage system that helps reduce your energy costs by time-shifting the use of energy and allows you to use energy on your own terms and at your own convenience.
2. Supports Demand Response programs that electric system planners and operators offer to consumers to influence changes in electric use and offers rewards for changes of behavior.
3. It can serve as an emergency backup power supply in the event of power loss.
4. It can also safeguard your off grid solution and protect your lead acid batteries.
The iCAN is a fully integrated smart Residential Energy Storage System (rESS). The self-contained enclosure is comprised of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, a controller, a charger, a battery management system, and an inverter.
