Retaining previous business is always a good thing, and growing that business is even better. Ideal Power, a developer of power conversion technologies, just received an order for 14.5 MW of its power conversion products for use in Battery Energy Storage Systems predominately for California and Hawaii. The order comes from an existing customer and includes a mixture of the company’s 30-kW Battery Converter, Grid-Resilient 30-kW Multi-Port Power Conversion System, and the newly released Grid-Resilient 125-kW Power Conversion System. The products are expected to be delivered throughout 2016 with initial deliveries expected to begin in January.
“This represents the largest order in Ideal Power’s history and positions us to enter 2016 with a robust backlog and enhanced visibility,” said Dan Brdar, CEO of Ideal Power. “This commitment validates that our channel partners are closing business, further establishing our market leadership in providing power conversion systems for behind-the-meter energy storage solutions.”
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 discuss 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.
