Our cause:

To have a positive impact on people's lives around the world by reshaping the way we think about and use electric power.  We strive to reduce wasteful power practices, lower consumer electric costs, simplify electric power usage, promote renewable energy sources, and bring power to those who have none.

Our history:

The Personal Energy Platform was born out of a frustration with the lack of easy access to power while on a road trip and the constant clutter of multiple power strips and bulky device power cords needed to run our home appliances, TVs, communications and entertainment devices. We knew there had to be a better way.

We believe in our cause and self-funded the development of multiple functional prototype units in order to validate, learn, and make improvements based on consumer feedback. Our prototype units were designed to support electric grids around the world and automatically adjust to voltage levels delivered via the wall outlet.   

During a public event of the Personal Energy Platforms in action, one consumer stated, "I don't know about any of that technical stuff.  Looks to me like you basically have a Grid-in-a-Box".  From her perspective, she was right, the Personal Energy Platform acts like today's grid. You don't need to know about the underlying technology, you just plug it in.

Our founders:

Bob Guimarin and Kadir Yilmaz, have over 50 years of IT systems, networking, grid infrastructure, power systems engineering, and consumer electronics expertise. We are a culturally diverse team of engineers who are acutely aware of the need to bring cost effective reliable power to the global community. We want to play our small part in achieving Energy Equality and Energy Resiliency for all.
