San Diego, CA, October 5, 2021 – NeoVolta Inc. (OTCQB: NEOV) – NeoVolta Inc., manufacturer of Smart Energy Storage Solutions, has expanded its distribution network to Texas. NeoVolta systems have been approved for grid connection by Oncor Electric Delivery Company, the state’s largest electric utility with more than 10 million customers, and by Bandera Electric Cooperative near San Antonio.
Texas ranks second in the nation in solar capacity, behind only NeoVolta’s home state of California. In addition to Texas and California, NeoVolta has certified installers in Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Oklahoma, Georgia, Florida, and Puerto Rico. To keep pace with its growing distribution network, NeoVolta recently signed a five-year supply agreement with its inverter manufacturer.
Energy resilience is a rising concern for Texans. In February 2021, winter storms caused a major power outage throughout the state. The crisis left some more than 4.5 million customers in the dark, many of them for several days, and led to skyrocketing electric bills. Texas is also one of the states hardest hit by hurricanes and tropical storms each year. Most recently, Hurricane Nicholas left more than 100,000 Texans without power in September 2021.
“Texas enjoys abundant sunshine and low solar costs, making it an ideal place to install NeoVolta energy storage,” said Brent Willson, the company’s CEO. “We’re thrilled to deliver utility savings and energy resilience to ratepayers across the Lone Star State.”
