WHAT WE DOSimply Grid provides a solution for on demand access to electricity. Our proprietary technology enables access to on-site, self-service electricity via industry standard charging stations and in-wall outlets for customers who initiate service with their mobile phones.
MARKETS WE SERVEPowering the mobile food industry
There are over 25,000 food carts and food trucks in the United States. This is a rapidly expanding space, and the food truck rodeo phenomena is rapidly spreading to cities throughout the country. Their legacy source of energy, gas or diesel powered generators, is both expensive for the vendors as well as a pollution and noise nuisance. Our solution enables private lot managers and municipalities to provide electricity to these vendors who can meet their energy needs at a significant cost savings while providing a better environment for everyone.
Idle reduction for public service, delivery, and fleet vehicles
Engine idling is a major problem for smog, urban air pollution, and greenhouse gases, especially in large diesel engines. According to the EPA, long-duration idling of truck and locomotive engines consumes over 1 billion US gallons (3,800,000 m3) of diesel fuel and emits 11 million tons of carbon dioxide, 200,000 tons of oxides of nitrogen, and 5,000 tons of particulate matter into the air each year. Our solution enables vehicles such as ambulances and delivery trucks to connect to the grid for energy to power their equipment or refrigeration units rather than idling their engines.
Managing electricity access at marinas and RV parks
There are more than 8,000 marinas and 13,000 RV parks in the United States. Many of these facilities either have no capability for the automated provisioning, management, and billing of electric service, or they have a legacy RFID card system which leaves customers unable to check their usage and presents proprietors with a myriad of operational challenges and customer support issues. Our solution provides both a metering and control capability to these locations which can enhance their revenue generation from electric service and streamline their operations.
Charging personal electronics in cafes and other public spaces
There is an increasing demand for resources like electricity in cafes and other public spaces. Proprietors have been providing resources and space to some visitors who spend little or no money. Municipalities wish to provide these resources to visitors but have no capacity to do so. Our solution enables these locations to provide electricity and other resources to customers or visitors while matching any revenue generation requirements.
