BALTIMORE, July 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pyxis Energy has partnered with Generac Power Systems Inc. to bring environmentally friendly, automated generator solutions to homes and businesses. The company has launched their new product Alternative Market Power or AMP, an innovative reliability service that aims to keep their customers' energy grid independent. No longer will homeowners and businesses have to worry about failing utility infrastructure, the increasing number of natural disasters or the threat of cyber terrorism shutting down the power grid.
"With AMP, our customers are protected from power outages 24 hours a day, seven days a week," says Del Hilber, Founder and Managing Partner of Pyxis Energy. "Better still, homeowners and small businesses can have the reliability of a Generac generator for little to no upfront cost, no hassle, and no maintenance responsibilities."
All that's required for AMP customers is a low monthly reliability fee and an electric and gas broker relationship with Pyxis Energy. AMP generators are environmentally friendly and EPA-certified for non-emergency use due to advancements in engine technology. The generators, fueled by natural gas or liquid propane, can run without restriction and will start automatically to provide backup power during power outages. Occasionally, Pyxis Energy will remotely dispatch the generator to protect against electrical grid instability or to offset extreme market conditions.
Pyxis Energy retains ownership of generator and associated micro-grid hardware for the term of the customer agreement. AMP generators are engineered and built in the USA and installed by locally owned and licensed Generac dealers. Generators are monitored in real-time, and should any issue occur, a local Generac dealer is dispatched. All generators are maintained and serviced according to Generac guidelines or better, which maximizes the useful life of the hardware and its availability.
Pyxis Energy is led by Del Hilber and Christopher Patino. Together they have nearly 40 years of combined experience in the energy industry including in energy procurement, energy business consulting, demand response, and distributed generation. Pyxis Energy serves customers in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Texas. To learn more about the company and their new product Alternative Market Power, visit pyxisenergy.com.
