Solstice is excited to be one of Powerhouse's three newest accelerator companies. Powerhouse is "the world’s only incubator and accelerator dedicated to intelligent energy technologies including solar, storage, demand response, and grid integration." As part of the accelerator, Solstice receives cash investment, 24/7 access to the incubator in Oakland and introductions to the community's network of industry leaders and new energy investors. With a focus on software, Powerhouse has joined the vision of Solstice as the team develops it's groundbreaking remote energy monitoring and controls platform, SHYFT, and the novel software that supports it.
As Solstice enters Beta Testing, the Powerhouse resources, including 1:1 mentor sessions with Powerhouse Co-Founder and CEO, Emily Kirsch, is helping the Solstice team tackle early stage challenges and leverage the experience of other intelligent energy startups. Solstice will be part of the accelerator for 6 months and has the option to join the incubator thereafter.
