Electriq Power signs private-label deal with ‘multi-billion-dollar company’ for PowerPod storage system
Electriq Power executed a three-year private label agreement valued at up to $200 million for its PowerPod home energy storage systems, with a multi-billion-dollar U.S.-based company. The customer is a diversified global manufacturer of power generation systems and equipment that employs personnel and owns assets in most industrialized parts of the world. Under the agreement, Electriq Power will supply home energy storage solutions based on its PowerPod platform, for distribution and sales through its customer’s extensive network in North America and the Caribbean, beginning in the second quarter 2021. The contract also calls for Electriq to provide system integration, product packaging, testing and certifications, communications, firmware, software portals, a Network Operations Center (NOC), and associated user apps.

Electriq Power’s PowerPod includes a cobalt-free Lithium-Iron-Phosphate (LFP) battery, hybrid battery/solar inverter, home energy management system, and an energy consumption meter. The system offers backup power as well as a smart home energy software app to manage electricity use and optimize efficiency.
“This agreement underscores our value as a company and is a vote of confidence for our technology,” said Frank Magnotti, CEO of Electriq Power. “We continue to innovate and develop new systems, with the intent to not simply stay at the forefront of the global transition to clean energy, but to supply the best possible solutions of the highest caliber.”
This is Electriq Power’s second private label deal since signing a white label production agreement in 2019 with one of the world’s largest providers of solar products. The company has been expanding its operations to meet the industry’s growing demand for energy storage solutions, signing definitive agreements in 2020 with Emergent Microgrid, a provider of turnkey microgrids, and Lilypad Energy, a provider of data analytics solutions. In October, the PowerPod became the first fully integrated OpenADR 2.0b-compliant battery storage system on the market, enabling Electriq Power to seamlessly partner with energy aggregators and participate in today’s dynamic energy marketplace.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
