San Diego, CA (July 20, 2023) - Powur PBC, a platform-based company simplifying the path to clean energy, announced that it is expanding its energy storage portfolio by partnering with FranklinWH Energy Storage Inc. (“FranklinWH”), a leader in whole-home energy management. By adding FranklinWH’s cost-competitive Franklin Home Power (FHP), a whole-home energy management system with AC-coupled storage, to its platform, Powur is expanding its already broad selection of clean energy solutions, including products and financing, to empower people to live in customized, smart energy homes and achieve energy independence. Fully committed to extending its sales through Powur, FranklinWH is gaining access to the largest and fastest-growing national residential solar sales network in the US.
“Including FranklinWH’s whole-home, cost-competitive battery backup solution on our platform means that Powur can provide additional customized clean energy solutions for people craving energy independence, especially as the grid is being stretched to its breaking point with extreme weather events,” stated Jonathan Budd, Founder and CEO of Powur. “With the energy market evolving at the speed of light, our agile clean energy enablement platform can quickly expand and scale up to integrate innovative solutions, from solar and batteries to EV chargers and other management solutions, to provide people with rapid access to smarter, cleaner energy.”
Fully developed by FranklinWH, FHP includes its proprietary battery, energy controls, and app. The solution provides 24/7 uninterrupted protection from grid failures, while also being easy to use for daily energy savings. FHP is universally compatible with any type of solar equipment, including both new and existing installations. Providing homeowners the visibility and control they need to achieve energy independence, FHP will be sold through Powur as a backup application, while also providing daily energy savings, such as time-of-use cost avoidance and maximizing solar energy usage. Powur will first launch FHP in the California, Texas, Florida, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, North and South Carolina, and Puerto Rico markets and plans to expand availability nationwide in the future.
“Working with Powur’s large sales network allows us to quickly educate people on preparing their homes for power outages and emergencies, while implementing innovative software to help them save on energy costs,” said Gary Lam, Cofounder and GM, FranklinWH. “These partnerships allow us to continue our drive towards whole home energy freedom for our customers.”
