Your Business Never Stops, So Why Should Your Power?

In today’s energy environment, businesses from Main Street to Wall Street must contend with an ever-present and increasing number of threats to maintaining a reliable power supply, making disaster preparedness and recovery plans critical.

According to ITIC’s 2017 Reliability and Hourly Cost of Downtime Trends Survey on average, each hour of downtime costs a company more than $100,000, while 81% of organizations report that the cost exceeds $300,000. Beyond those averages, one-third of companies say an hour of downtime costs them $1 million or more.

SimpliPhi energy storage and management systems prevent companies from losing vital revenue due to grid outages that undermine mission critical systems, equipment, servers, networks, payment systems, communications and more. Our energy storage solutions keep your business up and running and safeguard against energy-related losses.

Business FAQs:

How can SimpliPhi protect my business from downtime?
With a proven global track record of successful grid-tied and off-grid projects since 2010, SimpliPhi has the expertise and experience to design reliable backup and emergency power systems that protect your operations when power is intermittent or completely unavailable.
Can SimpliPhi save my business money on utility bills?
SimpliPhi energy storage solutions offset utility rates by reducing power usage during peak hours and shifting usage from peak to non-peak hours. As a result, businesses are able to avoid spikes in energy use and high demand charges that can account for more than 50% of every electric bill and save hundreds of thousands per year.
What are demand charges?
Demand charges are calculated based on the highest 15-minute average electrical use recorded in one month. Demand charges make up a significant percentage of all commercial and industrial utility bills -- typically between 30 and 70 percent. Demand charges continue to increase, while overall energy prices are decreasing. SimpliPhi storage solutions can protect your business from incurring these demand charges.
Can we install energy storage if we don’t have room for a large battery bank?
SimpliPhi energy storage solutions are energy dense with a very small footprint. Plus, because our non-toxic, safe LFP chemistry does not pose a risk of fire, it is not necessary to install the space-intensive cooling, thermal monitoring or ventilation equipment required by many other lithium ion storage solutions. In fact, SimpliPhi batteries can be installed in spaces as small as a cabinet or utility closet.
My business is growing. Can SimpliPhi scale with me?
Depending on your power needs, SimpliPhi’s modular energy storage solutions can scale to meet any demand, and grow over time as your power requirements increase. Adding more batteries to an existing installation is simple and cost effective.
Do SimpliPhi batteries put my business facility at risk of fire?

Absolutely not. In fact, because our batteries do not contain cobalt, SimpliPhi’s LFP lithium ion chemistry does not pose the risk of thermal runaway or fire, and is non-toxic and environmentally benign.

Commercial customers in California who endured the 2017 wildfire season are some of SimpliPhi’s greatest advocates -- grateful that their PHI batteries did not add to the catastrophic impact of wildfires, nor serve as the cause of any fire.
