Ideal Power Inc., a power conversion technologies developer, entered into a distribution agreement with WESCO International, Inc., which provides electrical, industrial and communications maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) and OWM products, construction materials, and advanced supply chain management and logistics services.
WESCO added Ideal Power’s Grid Resilient 30-kW and 125-kW power conversion systems to its distribution portfolio in markets including California, New York and Hawaii, where the energy storage opportunity complements its core PV solar business.
These grid-resilient power conversion systems enable the integration of solar PV systems and conventional generation with battery storage to deliver stable, flexible and reliable energy whether on or off the grid. WESCO currently has inventory in stock at its warehouses in California.
The distribution agreement gives Ideal Power access to WESCO’s network of 80,000 worldwide customers and 500 branches in North America and overseas.
“This agreement with WESCO will give Ideal Power additional channels to market, increasing our access to WESCO’s loyal base of customers,” commented Dan Brdar, CEO of Ideal Power. “We look forward to working with WESCO as we continue expanding our business.”
Ideal Power has developed a novel, patented power conversion technology called Power Packet Switching Architecture that improves the size, cost, efficiency, flexibility and reliability of electronic power converters.
