Personal Energy Platform
We're building a Personal Energy Platform™ (PEP) solution to help lower electric bills, reduce energy waste, and bring electric power to those who have none. We've built multiple functional prototypes to explore our vision, make improvements learned from each iteration, and show consumers to gain their feedback on what we've built and what functions they might want.
The patent pending Personal Energy Platform consists of a super-smart power management system, battery backup capability, and can be plugged into any 120V/240V AC wall outlet to directly connect and power your AC and DC devices. The Personal Energy Platform can be charged at night, when rates are lowest, and discharged during the day, negating the use of grid power when rates are high, all without the need to swap power cords or impacting your device usage when grid power is lost or degraded.

95% of all consumer devices operate on DC power, however, electricity is delivered via AC power. AC power needs to be converted to DC power via individual device AC-DC power cords or bricks. This conversion creates energy inefficiencies that increase your electric bill and cause the cord clutter we’ve all struggled to manage.
No more clutter of power strips and cords. The Personal Energy Platform eliminates the need for individual device AC-DC power cords. It has an internal AC-DC inverter to provide that function to all the devices. We provide a DC power cord to directly connect your end devices to the Personal Energy Platform.
Our solution consists of multiple Personal Energy Platform models that provide different battery backup capacities to support larger AC connected appliances for extended periods of power outages. Multiple Personal Energy Platforms operate in concert as a unified energy storage system in order to deliver the right amount of power to the most critical appliances in a distributed manner. Additionally, individual Personal Energy Platform units can be interconnected to expand the battery backup capacity during severe power loss situations. When the power is up, the Personal Energy Platform is saving you money on your electric bill.
When the Personal Energy Platform is simultaneously connected to grid and renewable energy sources, it automatically selects power from the renewable power source to reduce your reliance on grid power and lower your electric bill. It will automatically return to grid power usage when renewable power is unavailable or according to customer defined usage profiles.
