LUX POWER SQUIRREL POD

 

Home Energy Group Presents The UK’s Only Self Sufficient Energy Saving Squirrel Pod

Delivering The UKs highest charge and discharge rates

The Squirrel Pod

The Squirrel Pod opens up a new market of modular battery storage with or without a solar system. Each Squirrel Pod will create 3.5kWh of charge or discharge capacity, so adding a second pod creates max 7kw. Each Pod can have 1-8 batteries attached, in fact using the Uhome you can have a single stack of batteries with two or more controllers. The Squirrel Pod utilises variable cheap Green tariffs set by Octopus Energy which you can use to fill your batteries and use this energy to power your home when tariffs are high and without installing Solar.

ENERGY INDEPENDENCE IS

JUST ONE CLICK AWAY

OUR SINGLE LUX POWER SQUIRREL POD PRICES

Our single controller Lux Power Squirrel Pod battery storage systems can deliver up to 3.5Kw of charge & discharge rates.

These systems are suitable for people with a peak energy demand up to 3.5Kw.

The number of batteries you require depends on how many Kilowatts of energy you use in a day, “Don’t worry that’s easy to find out” Just simply look at your last annual energy bill and divide the total number of Kilowatts by 365 (number of days in a year) and that will give you your daily average.

OUR DUAL LUX POWER SQUIRREL POD PRICES

Our dual controller Lux Power Squirrel Pod battery storage systems can deliver up to 7.0Kw of charge & discharge rates.

These systems are suitable for people with a peak energy demand up to 7.0Kw.

The number of batteries you require depends on how many Kilowatts of energy you use in a day, “Don’t worry that’s easy to find out” Just simply look at your last annual energy bill and divide the total number of Kilowatts by 365 (number of days in a year) and that will give you your daily average.

HOW DOES THE LUX POWER SQUIRREL POD WORK?

New Energy providers like Octopus Energy will now provide extremely cheap off peak renewable electricity. The problem is that the time the electricity is cheap varies day to day. The Lux Power Squirrel Pod are battery storage systems which will automatically find the cheapest prices and fast

charge your batteries. This means you run your house from only the cheapest electricity available 24 hrs a day.

With a charge & discharge rate of up to 7.2Kw or more we are the only system that allows you to fill your batteries at high charge rates under the G100 fast track application with your local DNO.

The concept of our system uses two or more of our Lux Power AC Parallel controllers with a single stack or multiple stack of  Aoboet Uhome Squirrel Pod batteries. The  Squirrel Pod system is the only system in the UK that allows two or more controllers to work with only one stack of batteries. No other Manufacturer can achieve this.

PRICE POINT CHARGING

For those with Solar Panels, Lux Power has now introduced “Price Point Charging”. During the months of strong solar generation you may not feel you need fixed charging periods, so you can simply choose a price where you consider the electricity so cheap that you are happy to charge your batteries. The Lux Price charge will simply if the electricity prices are on or below your selected price.

For example we can set the “Price Point Charging” to £0.05. Octopus Energy release tomorrows energy price today, the Lux now knows exactly what every Half-Hourly charge periods are going to be for that day. When the tariff drops below our £0.05 “Price Point Charge” setting the Lux will automatically charge the batteries, when the tariff goes above our pre-set “Price Point Charge” the Lux will stop charging to ensure the customer never charges their batteries on higher price tariffs.

MODULAR BATTERY STORAGE

Up to now battery storage has been an incredible technology allowing customers to benefit from Max charge and discharge rates up to 3.5Kw depending on how many batteries they use. As we move to a greener future it is possible that renewable electricity will be the dominant power source. Lux Power systems allow future expansion by adding batteries or even controllers to create a larger ability to charge and discharge bigger loads.

Lux Power has now designed a new AC Parallel controller which allows you to expand your system by adding multiple controllers together. Each controller is capable of adding an additional 3.5kw of charge/discharge capacity. Using two controllers you can now Fast Charge or increase discharge rates up to 7.0Kw – That’s 2.0Kw more than Tesla! Two controllers can be either connected to a single stack of batteries via a combiner box or you can use two separate bank of batteries connected to each controller.

With this unique feature we have now created the “Squirrel Pod” battery storage system. With its capability of high charge and discharge rates and automatic Agile charging we have now created a concept that doesn’t require Solar.

OCTOPUS AGILE AUTOMATIC CHARGING

The Lux Power Squirrel Pod can automatically detect the cheapest half-hourly Agile tariffs set by Octopus Energy and charge the batteries without any manual/daily programming. Energy providers like Octopus Energy offer cheap Off Peak tariffs between 00:00am to 8:00am & 12:00pm to 4:00pm. By simply selecting how many half-hourly charge periods you want within these time slots the Lux will do the rest and hunt out the cheapest of the cheapest tariff rates and charge the batteries.

Home Energy Group Ltd are now part of the “works With Octopus” program

Octopus Energy offers a range of tariffs with EV owners, solar and battery customers in mind. They’re leading the way with time of use tariffs, offering you unparalleled value and control over your energy. The right tariff for you will depend on your set up and how your household consumes energy.

Our Lux Power Squirrel Pod Battery Storage system is full automated to work with the Agile Octopus tariff.

Agile Octopus

Octopus Energy’s groundbreaking time of use tariff is perfect for anyone that can shift their electricity use outside of peak times. Agile Octopus allows you to enjoy cheaper electricity prices when wholesale prices fall – in some cases they’ll even pay you to use energy as part of Plunge Pricing, whereby Octopus pays you to take excess energy off the grid. As part of this tariff, you get access to half-hourly energy prices, tied to wholesale prices and updated daily.

Here is an example of the “Octopus Agile” Price Plunge

Over the last 12 months, unit prices dropped below 2p / kWh 31 times.

Take Advantage of these low half-hourly cheap rates by allowing the Lux Power Squirrel Pod to automatically charge your Aoboet Uhome batteries with these cheap rates to use when the rates are much higher.
