Did you know that the USGBC BuildSMART Trailer at the Ventura Earth Day Eco Fest was powered entirely by non-toxic batteries from Ojai-based SimpliPhi Power? It only took one PHI 3.5 kWh battery to ensure that the USGBC never lost power during the festival. SimpliPhi storage can be charged with any energy source -- solar, wind, grid power or a generator -- and can provide hours of silent, safe, non-toxic electricity.

Why does it make sense to consider energy storage for your home or business? Without energy storage, renewable sources of power are intermittent, but so too is the grid in emergency and blackout scenarios when the centralized delivery of power breaks down. For home and business owners who have installed solar, energy storage allows you to future-proof solar savings, particularly in the event of a utility rate change, by storing the solar when the sun’s shining and using it at a time when utility rates are high and the sun isn’t shining. Perhaps most importantly, any California resident or business can use energy storage to ensure reliable power and resiliency in the face of a natural disaster. There are 3,879 power outages on average in the US each year, and they have only been increasing since 2012. SimpliPhi customers were able to maintain power during last year’s wildfires, including at the Stone Edge Farm Microgrid, which withstood the recent Northern California wildfires and power outages. The Stone Edge Farm Microgrid served as a community center during this disaster, allowing neighbors to charge necessary devices when no one else had access to power. In addition to continuing to power each building, the Stone Edge Farm Microgrid was even able to pump water to fight the fires. After the fires, SimpliPhi’s solutions have also been deployed in prefabricated, manufactured homes by homeowners looking to rebuild their homes in a more sustainable, efficient way.
