PG&E blackouts spur sales of BoxPower solar/battery units

California’s recent power blackout episode triggered the strongest sales ever for BoxPower Inc., the maker of a turnkey solar power and battery unit in a box.

The Grass Valley company builds self-contained and automated solar power systems out of shipping containers or on shipping pallets.

Co-founder Anderson Barkow said last week, as Pacific Gas & Electric Co. shut off power to 734,000 homes and businesses in 35 California counties, BoxPower saw its “busiest week in terms of inquiries ever.”
