CleanSpark is investing a ton into Bitcoin mining these days, but it is a diversified company that remains focused on microgrids and solar + storage, rolling out updates for mVoult last week. mVoult is a single solution for resilient and cost-effective energy for residential properties of all sizes, enabling a system to use power generated from multiple sources, including the main utility, solar, or battery. The company is focusing on California for its first phase of installations as much of the state continues to face disastrous wildfires and power outages.
mVoult is built off of the same platform as CleanSpark’s existing, patented mPulse product, which is tough enough for the military and is also flexible enough to be used in commercial, industrial, and estate home applications. The system is fully configurable according to the user’s needs. Homeowners can start small and expand the modular system without significant design changes as their goals or requirements grow. It also supports storing energy for use during utility disruptions or when economic opportunities exist to lower utility bills.
“We’ve anticipated using our microgrid technologies to create a cost-effective product offering which can add significant value to the residential energy sector by giving homeowners the choice of power so that they can determine the best application for their individual needs,” said CleanSpark President and CEO Zach Bradford. “The pandemic made it more apparent how important self-reliance can be, by giving our customers the opportunity to generate, use and store energy with a focus on renewable resources. CleanSpark is committed to supporting that process.”
The companion mobile app connects to the mVoult smart power system and is the window into the homeowner’s power system. With the app, users can see how their systems are performing, understand all-time and month-to-date energy cost savings, and view and change system settings, including battery reserve, and monitor the system’s energy usage in real-time. The mobile app is available for download in both the Apple and Google Play app stores.
CleanSpark has a significant supply of batteries either in transit, or in the Carlsbad warehouse, which are continuing to be deployed as quickly as permitting and personnel allow. Despite global battery supply shortages, CleanSpark has solidified partnerships with multiple top-tier residential battery manufacturers providing ample supply to meet our growing customer demand.
“We are seeing positive improvements to the overall global supply chains and have been rapidly deploying batteries,” said Amer Tadayon, CleanSpark Chief Revenue Officer and Energy Division President. “We expect continued normalization, adding momentum to our residential energy initiative.”
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.
