Welcome to The Next Generation of Energy, with RoseWater Energy Group. Traditionally, power availability has been the overriding objective for home automation, but 21st century advances have shifted this paradigm - it's no longer a question of power availability. The real question is, "how good is your power?" Our podcast explores this shifting paradigm to educate our listeners on the importance of power quality, the foundation upon which premium home automation is built.

    Why Intelligent Design Is Powering Energy Evolution

    Why Intelligent Design Is Powering Energy Evolution

    Joe Piccirilli, Managing Director at RoseWater Energy Group, has always spoken about four pillars of energy design: perfect power quality, protection against lightning, battery backup and renewable integration. Now, he’s added a fifth.

    “After a few years of dealing with misconceptions about what batteries and renewals are capable of doing, I’ve added a fifth pillar,” he said. “That fifth pillar is intelligent design.”

    For instance, a number of people who Troy Morgan CEO of PantTech Design, has worked with recently think they can power their whole house on battery backup for nearly an endless amount of time. Others think if they have solar panels, their house will stay powered even if the grid goes down. Not so – unless a battery is involved.

    That’s why Morgan and Piccirilli think educating the public on energy issues is so important. That includes consumers who simply want to make sure their power stays on at their home, but also builders and contractors responsible for designing the systems

    “The traditional design principles have required contractors to pre-define (a complicated energy plan), know all this up front and then, more importantly, design the system in such a way that there’s a separate energy panel that the battery powers. So, all the things the battery powers go in that and everything else is in a completely separate load center,” he said. “With Adapt Energy, you don’t have to think about it like that anymore, but you do still have to know up front what can the battery power and what can’t the battery power.”

    Why Many Consumers Are Waking Up to Their Power Quality Issues

    Why Many Consumers Are Waking Up to Their Power Quality Issues

    A dropped Zoom call here. A brief internet outage there. When millions more Americans were working from their offices, it would’ve gone unnoticed. Now, with so many more working from home because of the coronavirus pandemic, people are waking up to their power quality issues.

    “We didn’t really notice power quality issues, because we weren’t home,” said Joe Piccirilli, CEO of RoseWater Energy. “During the day, when we’re normally at work, is when our electrical system is taxed the most. Anything that went on in the home, there was nobody there to notice. Now, during the COVID era, for the last … 16 weeks to 20 weeks at this point, people have begun to notice.”

    While the bulk of RoseWater’s focus has been on residential clients, more and more businesses are coming aboard as they enter a digital era in which they need documents instantly and can’t wait for a transition to a backup in the case of a power outage – something RoseWater’s product eliminates via battery technology always powering the inverter.

    “We’ve noticed that now law offices, doctors’ offices – anybody who is storing digital information where secure, always available information has to be there – have become a great deal more interested in our product,” Piccirilli said. “Because our product guarantees perfect power. It is not just a battery backup. It is not something that just an enabler for a renewable. Our product guarantees that the power output of our device feeding your home is always perfect, regardless of input.”

    That’s needed as the pandemic has more and more people working from home, something that most thought leaders agree will be more frequent even in a post-COVID world after the pandemic provided something of a proof of concept for many businesses. None of that works, however, if the devices we utilize don’t get the juice they need or get it in a good enough quality to make sure we can work our best.
