WESCO has added Ideal Power’s Grid Resilient 30 kW and 125 kW power conversion systems to its distribution portfolio in markets including California, New York and Hawaii, where the energy storage opportunity complements its core solar photovoltaic business.
According to Ideal, these grid-resilient power conversion systems enable the integration of solar PV systems and conventional generation with battery storage to deliver stable, flexible and reliable energy whether on or off the grid. WESCO currently has inventory in stock at its warehouses in California.
“We’re excited about the possibilities this agreement brings to our customers, particularly utilities and those working in remote locations,” says David Bemoras, WESCO vice president of global sales and marketing. “These products have proven to be an economical choice by enabling customers to store energy created by solar and use it at a later time.”
Ideal Power says the distribution agreement gives the company access to WESCO’s network of 80,000 worldwide customers and 500 branches in North America and overseas.
“This agreement with WESCO will give Ideal Power additional channels to market, increasing our access to WESCO’s loyal base of customers,” comments Dan Brdar, CEO of Ideal Power. “We look forward to working with WESCO as we continue expanding our business.”
