Electriq's flagship product line is the PowerPod, the industry-leading smart home battery backup system designed to save on electricity costs and protect against blackouts. The system includes a battery, hybrid battery/solar inverter, an energy meter, as well as a smart home energy software to manage electricity use and optimize efficiency. The PowerPod is modular and expandable up to three systems with three battery packs per system, giving installers and homeowners system design flexibility, with up to 16.5 kW of power and 99 kWh of battery storage.
The PowerPod 2, launched in late 2020, is the next-generation version of Electriq Power's industry-leading PowerPod family. This latest system is equipped with non-toxic, non-hazardous Lithium-Iron-Phosphate (LiFePO4), or LFP, batteries, which are rapidly becoming the industry standard, allowing for longer battery cycle life, increased reliability, and enhanced safety. The new high-performance, cobalt-free model builds upon key features of the original PowerPod system and PowerPod LFP technology to create the optimal energy storage solution. Notable product enhancements of the PowerPod 2 include:
The PowerPod 2 became the first fully integrated OpenADR 2.0b-certified residential battery storage system on the market, enabling Electriq Power to seamlessly partner with energy aggregators and participate in today's dynamic energy marketplace. Recent strategic partnerships have given Electriq Power a pathway forward into deployment and control of energy storage systems while maximizing value for microgrids. Additionally, as the company continues to build out its vision of increasing value-added services for Virtual Power Plants, Electriq Power has accelerated deployments of battery systems and established a foundation from which to provide real-time grid services to support utility infrastructure and grid operators across the country.

The energy cost savings after 20 years is estimated at $39.45 million, and $60.55 million over 25 years, the report to the board states. The larger number reflects five years of having no debt service payments. Most of the savings will be generated by rooftop solar systems, battery energy storage, more efficient LED lighting systems and newer more efficient equipment at five sites where it will produce 85 to 90 pct of the energy needs. The county hopes the project will be operational in two years; 18 months of that is basically waiting for PG&E to approve an inner-connectivity agreement.

According the CEC, China's major power companies invested roughly $20.6 billion in increased power generation capacity in Q1, 91 pct of which went to non-fossil fuel power generation. The CEC noted that China's newly installed power generation capacity will reach around 180 million kilowatts in 2021, of which about 140 million kilowatts of non-fossil energy power generation capacity will be put into operation.
China's installed capacity of coal power generation stood at 1.09 billion kilowatts at the end of March. The proportion of the total installed capacity fell below half for the first time since the end of 2020, before further dropping to 48.8 pct at the end of March this year, according to the CEC.
China ranked first in the world in newly installed wind capacity amid efforts to pursue greener development in 2020, the NEA data showed. Besides wind energy, the country is also a global leader in the production and use of solar energy and hydropower, among others.
