Context

The Home is located in a residential estate in Lekki where power supply can be available for 4 to 6 hours on a good day. Out of a rooted desire to live well, the family investigated the benefits of having a Juststandout solution installed in their home, before moving to their new home, they consulted with Juststandout Limited and they were pleased to discover that they can install a solution that can power lights, fans and a few electrical equipments like TV, Laptops while retrofitting their current electrical system.

The Challenge

The Ikechukwu’s live in an estate with consistent power failure in Lekki, Lagos, where the average person spends lots of funds to run a large 20 KVA generator while suffering air and noise pollution. This power failure can run into days, weeks or even months. For example from June to August 2012 there was no utility power due to a downed transformer.

The Juststandout Solution

Juststandout provides systems that work. The Juststandout Living Solutions call for designing or renovating Energy systems within a structure to minimize energy consumption so we are better able to meet the people’s energy goals. The client was advised to get a 7kva diesel generator to reduce fuel consumption. All lights were changed to energy savings lights. Fans were added to provide cooling. Juststandout Ice Battery was also implemented to run the freezer. The solution implemented a power system of 2.4Kw with 24Volts/50Amps charging power, 200Ah x 6 Battery bank. The inverter acquired is a Juststandout JSO 2424 Inverter/Charger and Juststandout batteries which provides one of the highest efficiency systems available today. With careful scheduling and judicious expediting, Juststandout completed the project in a day.

The Outcome

Initially, the PHCN gave about 30% – 40% of the home’s electricity needs. With energy efficiency project such as installing an ice battery, the Juststandout solution currently provides up to 70% of the total energy needs of the home when there is no utility power.

Additional energy improvements such as conversion to the latest generation of energy light bulbs promises to increase that amount to the 80% to 90% range.

While the Ikechukwu family is saving money, they’ve accomplished their most important objectives: living their dream of sustainability and making a contribution to greener living.

Even though the solution was rated for 10 hours, due to other efficiencies in the household, the client is able to get up to 16 hours per day of backup for the home. Since PHCN has stabilized from the last power outage of three months, they have been supplying 6 – 10 hours, the Ikechukwu’s have not had the need to turn on their generator for a few weeks now.
