Power Storage Solutions, a Dallas-based energy storage solutions integrator and service company, announced it has entered into a dealership agreement with energy and utility services innovator ELM. In December, Illinois-based ELM announced that it’s constructing a new, 125,000-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility in The Colony for its MicroGrid and Solar divisions.
The companies said the arrangement allows a channel to provide leading-edge technology, UL-certified “turnkey” packaged, USA-based microgrids for utility, commercial, and industrial applications.
“This relationship brings together a leading manufacturer in ELM and a nationwide solutions integrator in Power Storage Solutions, to provide exactly what a customer would need for resilient power for just about any applications.” Power Storage Solutions CEO Terry Cummings said in a statement.
The combined strengths of Power Storage Solutions’ sales, marketing and turnkey capabilities with ELM manufacturing provides increased access to turnkey microgrid solutions across the country, the companies said.
From 30 kilowatts to 20 megawatts
ELM MicroGrid’s Battery Energy Storage Solutions enables customers to select from a wide array of standard sizes from 30 kilowatts to 20 megawatts for industrial applications or the Home Series for residential applications.
Microgrids operate autonomously in tandem with the grid or in a standalone operation “islanded” mode separate from the public grid in the event of a power outage, Power Storage Solutions said.
Microgrid systems historically were assembled and installed as separate components in the field, leading to complex and unique configurations that are difficult to manage and service, the company noted.
ELM MicroGrid units, however, are factory-assembled and ship as a self-contained UL 9540-certified unit ready for installation, saving consumers and contractors time and money.
“We’re beyond excited to add Power Storage Solutions to our ELM Dealer Network,” Aron Bowman, president of ELM Microgrid, said in a statement. “Their unparalleled experience in complete customer solutions provides the perfect partnership to help us continue to lead the microgrid market forward with our rapid deployment Microgrid BESS systems.”
In its December announcement, ELM said that when fully operational, its facility in The Colony will employ more than 100 clean-energy professionals, including engineering, production technicians, customer service, sales, and management employees.
The addition of this production facility will expand the total production footprint for ELM’s MicroGrid division to almost 200,000 square feet of space in Texas and Oklahoma and will expand production capacity to 500 units per year, the company said.
