JLM Energy, Inc. announced today that its first MicroStorage product, Phazr, is now certified to UL standards 9540 and 1973. These standards are designed to provide third-party validation of safety, reliability and performance for energy storage products.
UL 9540, a joint standard with Canada, certifies Phazr as a complete home energy storage system that interacts safely with UL 1741 certified inverters. The system meets the latest National Electric Code 2017 requirements.
UL 1973 is a battery safety certification standard, which validates Phazr’s “ability to safely withstand simulated abuse conditions,” including extreme heat, drop and impact tests. Phazr was subjected to 120 hours of testing at 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
“We have thousands of orders for Phazr systems, both residential and commercial. Sales to date create an estimated $5 million in lifetime savings,” said Ardes Johnson, VP of Strategic Initiatives at JLM Energy. “Phazr’s UL approval status will accelerate building and electrical permitting processes.”
Phazr uses JLM Energy’s patent-pending Symmetric DC Regulation, the only technology available that enables a solar panel to charge a battery and send power to a home or building at the same time. Excess energy can then be stored in the battery for use 24-hours a day.
Phazr is also self-supply certified in Hawaii.
