Caban Systems, a designer and manufacturer of software-enabled energy storage systems for the telecommunications industry, said it is the recipient of a $1.9M grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC). As the state’s primary energy policy and planning agency, the CEC plays a critical role in creating and sustaining the state’s energy infrastructure. This capital will be used to expand production of energy systems at the Caban System’s headquarters in Burlingame, California, to meet growing customer demand in the state.
The California Public Utilities Commission reported that during 2017 storm outages, “Almost one million customers could not make 911 calls, more than 790,000 customers experienced loss of communication service, and more than 52,000 businesses experienced service interruptions.” More recent wildfire-related power outages highlight California’s immediate need to accelerate the adoption of energy storage platforms for critical infrastructure.
Caban System’s Burlingame manufacturing line will produce a purpose-built, modular battery storage system that it hopes will provide reliable, redundant power sources for critical infrastructure systems across California.
