Program will help nearly 400,000 residents gain access to solar + battery storage systems
West Palm Beach, FL. – January 10, 2024 – Electriq Power Holdings, Inc. (“Electriq”) (NYSE:ELIQ), a trusted provider of intelligent energy storage and management solutions for homes and small businesses, announced today that it will launch 10 new Sustainable Community Networks (SCN) in municipalities in Los Angeles County under one contract.
Through the Sustainable Community Networks program, known as PoweredUp Network, Electriq offers zero-upfront cost solar + battery storage systems to qualifying homeowners. There is no income, credit or property lien requirements, making it ideal for low-to-moderate income residents to gain access to clean, reliable affordable energy. The systems can also lower electricity costs up to 20%, stabilize electric costs by avoiding periods of peak pricing, and provide backup power during power outages.
Electriq is set to launch the PoweredUp Network program to consumers by the end of Q1’2024. Roughly 400,000 residents across the 10 communities will be able to take advantage of the program.
“Our vision is to make reliable, affordable, clean energy available to everyone, regardless of means, which is why our programs are rapidly growing,” said Frank Magnotti, CEO of Electriq Power. “Our program is great for low-to-moderate income households because it gives them the ability to install solar + storage because we’ve removed those financial barriers.”
Electriq’s SCN programs have been growing in popularity, largely driven by homeowners increasingly seeking to lower electricity costs and create energy resiliency. In California, residential electric rate increases have ranged between 34% to 82% across the three major investor-owned utilities since 2014, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, and power outages continue to impact the state, caused by severe weather and increased demand on the electrical grid.
Solar + battery storage systems help protect homeowners against economic uncertainties from inflation, rising fuel prices, and utility rate increases. With these systems, homeowners can reduce electricity costs. Additionally, stored energy in the battery system can be used during peak demand periods when utility rates are high, to lower costs or keep the lights on during a power outage.
