Utility Bill Savings

Maximize savings on your utility bill by pairing your PowerPod with solar.

Reliable Backup Power

When grid power goes down, maintain power to critical home appliances ensuring safety and peace-of-mind.

Energy Independence

PowerPod supports autonomous off-grid applications with loads up to 21 kW peak per inverter (16.5 kW continuous).

Environmentally Friendly

Using energy storage can delay or avoid the need to build additional power plants and reduce emissions harmful to the planet.

Modular & Scalable

Fit any size home by adding more power or energy, even years down the road.

With or Without Solar

PowerPod can be DC coupled for brand new systems or installed without solar.

Monitor & Control with the Electriq Power App

The Electriq Power app provides analytics and insight on production, consumption, and storage data in an intuitively designed interface.

Correlating utility rates, weather predictions, historical consumption, and other factors, Electriq View automates savings by controlling the PowerPod and other smart appliances to lower energy consumption during peak rates.

The Electriq Power app is available on both web and mobile applications, and can be accessed from anywhere in the world through the cloud.

Modes of Operation

In Savings mode, the inverter remains grid-connected, but prioritizes the use of battery and renewable sources to run loads during high rate periods. Power supplied from the batteries will attempt to match the load for as long as possible during peak Time-of-Use (TOU).

In Self-Supply mode, the PowerPod prioritizes powering local loads with solar and/or stored power first. The PowerPod will use generated solar power to recharge batteries before any power is exported to the grid. If the battery is full and a surplus of power is available, that surplus is exported to the grid. If the battery is depleted and no solar power is available, power is drawn from the grid to power loads as a last-priority source.

In some markets, solar PV systems are prohibited from back-feeding to the AC grid. For these applications, PowerPod has Net Zero Export mode – a subset of Self-Consumption mode. The key difference is that when the batteries are full and there are no loads, rather than sending excess power to the grid, the PowerPod will limit power generation such that it matches the power consumed by local loads resulting in no exported power.

In Backup mode, the PowerPod prioritizes keeping batteries charged and ready for grid interruption, using only solar power. When grid service is interrupted, the system will automatically begin islanding, powering local loads with solar power or stored battery power.
