Austin, Texas – Stealth Power has partnered with Bob’s Containers, both headquartered and manufacturing their products in Austin, Texas, to expand its reach and crossover into residential solar via commercial inroads. Bob’s Containers will now sell Stealth Power’s Mobile Power Systems (MPS), which include its Stealth Solar and Clean Generator™, to offer a full stack of off-grid and energy independent solutions.
Bob’s Containers has received ongoing inquiries for solar power and off-grid solutions since its inception in 2018 but has remained focused on the interior components of the containers to prove the concept. Since clinching a sizable portion of the Texas market this year, they have decided to tackle the exterior, allowing them to respond to the requests for off-grid options and energy independence.
“Stealth Power will allow us to unlock solutions for markets and customers looking to stay off-grid, supplement power usage, or utilize backup power solutions in our container homes,” said Robert Balderas, CEO of Bob’s Containers, adding, “We are excited to further expand our product offering of innovative and attainable housing solutions by partnering with an industry leading mobile power provider.”
Presently, 90 percent of Bob's custom container orders will be purpose-built for housing, and the market is still expanding. The structures are modular, easy to move, weather resistant, and more affordable than traditional housing, the latter of which has become a major selling point considering a broken housing supply chain (Schuetz, 2022) and rising inflation. Furthering the motivation for energy independence and redundancy is the recent instability of power grids in Texas and across the country.
“Partnering with Bob’s Containers to bring off-grid and supplemental power solutions to their containerized real estate creates independence for customers, allowing the freedom to go anywhere,” stated Stealth Power CEO, Devin Scott. “It’s an exciting time in which people can literally work and play anywhere they want. We are proud to be associated with such a quality, fast-growing company that has already become a superstar in the custom container industry.”
Stealth Power provides the leading mobile power systems with state-of-the-art flexible solar panels in commercial applications – currently implemented by government and corporate entities, providing independent, redundant power. Their 83-cell solar panel technology provides maximum efficiency while its pliability and minimal weight allow for a variety of placement options. Stealth’s energy storage modules use lithium-ion technology, making them scalable in size, versatile in orientation and dense in power capacity. The Clean Generator™, a sustainable, hybrid generator that utilizes renewable energy and energy storage to provide backup power in case of an increase in power needs or an emergency black out, will also be available to provide redundancy and safety to Bob’s customers.
