Savant acquires energy storage tech company POMCube
Smart home and load management system provider Savant Systems is expanding fully into energy storage systems by acquiring POMCube.
“As part of our vision to create brighter lives and a more sustainable world, we’re continually looking to improve energy efficiency and independence on the path to Net Zero,” said Bob Madonna, Savant Systems CEO. “No home can be truly intelligent without smart power and by bolstering our energy technology portfolio we have taken another important step toward our goal of making every home smart.”
For nearly 10 years, POMCube has been developing and deploying energy storage systems (ESS) that are helping to facilitate the use of clean energy and provide battery backup in homes and commercial locations throughout North America and Asia. Moving forward, POMCube will function under the Savant brand and management.
“We’re excited to become part of the Savant Systems family and join their renowned culture of tech innovation,” said Andy Li, POMCube Founder. “From day one we set out to speed up the energy transition with a state-of-the-art inverter and battery technology, and now as part of Savant we can broaden our reach to make a greater impact.”
Savant Power System
Savant will enhance its current power system with its newly acquired technology. The Savant Power System complements any solar panel installation with whole-home battery backup and load management. Featuring a scalable inverter from 7.5 kW to 125 kW with battery storage scaling from 10 kWh to 200 kWh of LFP batteries, the solution can back up power to any size home for days.
Savant’s software platform allows for monitoring, control and automation of every circuit, optimizing efficiency, reducing costs, and maximizing the life of the battery. Energy Modes can be activated at the touch of a button thanks to the award-winning Scenes Engine. Eco Mode, Storm Watch Mode, and Off-Grid Mode allow homeowners to be ready for any scenario while prioritizing the use of stored energy and local generation to reduce grid dependence.
The Savant Power System along with the vast lighting, entertainment, security, and comfort portfolios of Savant smart home and GE Lighting, a Savant company, might be the most robust whole home automation portfolio controlled by a single app. This uniquely positions the company as a key partner that can help solar installers provide seamless smart home and energy solutions to their customers and help homeowners and builders create the Net Zero smart home of the future.
