Development. Production. Service.
Our current share of US lead-acid battery energy storage system (BESS) market exceeds 50% of the 150 MW currently installed in operating facilities. We seek to expand our business footprint to the utility, commercial and residential markets over the next five years.
FirstCharge team members individually have accumulated over 30 years experience in research and development, engineering, technology commercialization, operations and service in the US and internationally.
Our experience over the past year has accelerated significantly. Our development plan has successfully coupled new and proprietary BESS technology with legacy technology evolved over the previous 15 years in the US and China. We are now deploying this innovative BESS technology to several North American and International customers in Hawaii, Texas, New Jersey, Italy and China.
Our BESS solution capacity presently covers a range of 40 kWhrs to 20,000 kWhrs.
Technology Intellectual Property Strategy
Our strategy is simple: we offer a turnkey solution to commercializing BESS lead-acid battery technology. Our solution is to target wholesale and retail customers where fast and reliable BESS solutions can be realized.
Because of our relatively low cost of proprietary BESS manufacturing operations, we are able to lower the financial risk and secure target rates of return for our customers, investors and industry supply chain partners. Where economic, we will invest side-by-side with our development partners to ensure that our long-term warranty commitment and best in class BESS solution is the right decision for our customers.
"FirstCharge 's ability to quickly demonstrate technical ESS expertise was the best decision we made."
