SANTA ANA, Calif., Dec. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- GreenStruxure, the joint venture between Schneider Electric and Huck Capital, is teaming up with Instant ON, one of California's leading microgrid integrators and developers. Both organizations announced today they are joining forces to meet the immediate needs of California building owners and operators for cost-effective, resilient and sustainable energy solutions. Instant ON joins GreenStruxure's alliance partner program to accelerate the deployment of GreenStruxure's unique Energy as a Service business model. Together they will serve the underserved medium-sized commercial and industrial building market across California and provide the energy outcomes customers need with no upfront capital or operational risks.
Businesses in California today are challenged by a prolonged wildfire season, unpredictable service and demanding clean energy standards. GreenStruxure, bringing together Schneider Electric's industry leading expertise in renewable energy microgrids and Huck Capital's sustainability-focused investments, was launched in September 2020 to help customers address these challenges and take control of their energy. The company offers innovative, modular, standardized renewable energy microgrids under a new Energy as a Service model. Customers have no upfront capital expenses, no risk and do not have to worry about operation or maintenance issues with a complex energy system. They will also enjoy a predictable, long-term contract for energy that provides cost-effective, resilient, sustainable power. The new solution can be up and running in about a year, which means that businesses in California need to start the evaluation process now to prepare for next year's fire season. For those who have been affected and in tier 2 and 3 fire zones, Instant ON has also designed immediate solutions that provide back up power for essential loads before the full microgrid solution is completed.

The companies are focusing on medium-sized building customers with demanding sustainability targets, a need for reliable power to run their business, and spend of at least $35,000/month or about $400,000/year in electricity. Many of these customers also deliver critical community services such as hospitals and health care facilities, food and beverage operations, refrigerated warehouses, governmental buildings and universities.
