THE MAGIC IS THE CONTROLLER
WHY THE GPRM100 The magic is in the controller. It makes sure that the solar p a n e l s o r b a t t e r i e s a re providing power whenever possible. Only then does it look for AC grid power.
POWER UP SEQUENCE - Energy Saver First solar power is utilized, if there is a deficit of power then batteries are added in, and if that is not enough then the AC grid power is utilized.
% Renewable Energy
Renewable Energy Cycle - Saves Money $ The environmental controller manages the energy sources to make sure that a renewable energy source is always utilized first, before using AC power from the grid. The controller blends AC and DC power to maximize efficient use of energy at all times.
Battery Charge Cycle - Extends Battery Life $ The environmental controller make sure that the battery life is maximized by managing the charge and discharge circuits. No overcharging the batteries or discharging too deeply which shortens the life of the battery.
Renewable Energy Drives Utility Costs Way Down The more solar and battery power used the less your utility costs will be at month end. This unit can run off-grid if configured properly. No utility costs at all.

Initial Cost Model ** COMMERCIAL * Typical installation cost
Federal tax credit (30%)
SREC Annual Renewable Credit
Accelerated Depreciation (50% bonus - see details)
$171 - $3,179
* Check with local CPA and utilities for qualifications related to tax credits and rebates.
** System includes GPRM100 Solar AC plus 2KW solar panels, 1500W AC power out, 2 ea 250 AH AGM batteries. Shipping and installation not included.
TYPICAL APPLICATIONS Off-Grid - Size the solar panels and batteries to operate the system without ac power from the grid. Generates “green” energy out to power up other devices such as cell phones, computers, TV, and fridge. Great for portable offices, mining & drilling sites, construction, second homes, sustainable living projects.
Grid Attached - Grid attached inverter to sell excess solar power to local utility company. This application cost more to install but generates larger energy savings over time.
Hybrid 1 - Similar to off grid installation including “green” ac power out option. Use this receptacle to power up other appliances such as TV, computer, fridge, cell phones and lights. Uses grid AC power as a last resort to save money and provides “green” ac power during grid failure.
Hybrid 2 - Similar to off grid installation but instead of plugging devices into receptacle, provide the “green” ac power out line and attach to a sub- panel in the building and provide the ac power to a circuit or two in the building. Provides ac power during grid failure.
The GPRM100 aggressively lowers utility costs by providing an efficient air conditioner, and utilizing renewable energy sources including solar panels and batteries. The system also operates as a virtual power plant by providing clean, green AC power for other devices. The reassuring fact is that is will provide power when the grid power goes down during a power outage. Toll-free 855.757-6937 www.greenprm.com
