Shifted Energy has signed an agreement to incorporate its grid-interactive water heaters (GIWH) into Hawaiian Electric Company’s emerging grid services market as part of a Grid Services Purchase Agreement. The press release is linked here.

Shifted Energy will install up to 2,400 GIWH systems across Oahu and Maui, with a specific focus on hard-to-reach customers including low- and moderate-income, apartment dwellers, and renter communities. Under the contract, the combined GIWH systems will function as a 2.5-megawatt virtual power plant (VPP), making it one of the largest competitively procured GIWH deployments in the world.

In addition to this major Hawaii project, Shifted Energy is actively deploying pilots and developing commercial projects in other U.S. states, as well as Canada, Australia and Europe, where utility programs support the use of energy storage and clean energy resources.
