Powin Energy Corporation (stock symbol: PWON), a leading manufacturer of fully integrated energy storage solutions, has sold over 110MWh of select project assets and contracted pipeline to esVolta. esVolta recently received a large financial commitment from Blue Sky Alternative Investments LLC to accelerate its growth in the North American utility-scale energy storage market. Powin Energy will be esVolta’s exclusive provider of energy storage systems through 2022.
“Powin Energy’s business plan has long had the vision of transitioning the company out of the project development business and into being a fully dedicated energy storage systems and services provider,” said Geoffrey Brown, President of Powin Energy. “This transaction is the realization of that plan and will enable the company to focus all of its efforts on delivering the best energy storage systems in the industry to our developer and utility customers. esVolta and Blue Sky’s commitment to developing energy storage projects with Powin Energy’s products is strong validation of our technology and the top-tier team we’ve assembled.”
