Controller will manage complex sites that leverage solar PV and sizeable battery storage to power dozens of EV charging centers.
San Diego, Calif. – July 11, 2023 – Grid controls provider PXiSE Energy Solutions today announced its Microgrid Controller has been selected by Rove, a full-service charging center operator in Southern California, to manage power flow at Rove’s centers which will start opening later this year.
Rove will use battery storage and onsite solar to allow electric vehicles (EVs) to continue charging at its centers during a grid power outage for several hours, a feature enabled and autonomously managed by PXiSE’s Microgrid Controller.
“These kinds of collaborations where PXiSE’s easily configurable products are adopted and implemented by clean energy developers such as Rove, are where we see huge potential.” Tim Allen, PXiSE President & CEO, said. “Our customers recognize that by using PXiSE’s software to unify and automate control of solar PV, batteries, and electric vehicle charging, they can eliminate a lot of complexity in managing multiple distributed energy resources at a single site.”
“We’re thankful for the team at PXiSE and their commitment to helping us build a better EV charging experience in Southern California,” said Nathan McDonnell, CEO of Rove. “This advanced controller will allow us to better leverage renewable energy from the California grid and Rove’s onsite solar to provide more affordable, sustainable, and reliable charging to Rove customers.”
Running patented technology, the PXiSE Microgrid Controller provides an advanced, adaptable, and reliable software-based solution that supports a diversity of site resources, loads, and use cases. For Rove’s centers, it will manage the point of interconnection with the utility to a net-zero export while also managing the facility’s generation capability. While the first of Rove’s sites will see PXiSE’s controller deployed in Southern California, the advanced Microgrid Controller can readily be deployed worldwide, wherever a complex microgrid is needed.
