Polar Power Receives $1.3M Contract for Public-Safety Communications
Thursday, October 03, 2019 | Comments

Polar Power received a $1.3 million purchase order for backup generators from a rural telecom provider engaged in building high-speed rural wireless broadband networks in 14 states to enhance public safety. Telecom companies and the federal government are jointly building the rural networks throughout the nation to provide enhanced high-speed communications across the United States.

This rural initiative is intended to provide more reliable communications during emergencies and faster and more complete broadband services for all public sector needs, a statement said. During the past five years, Polar Power has been centered on Tier 1 wireless carriers in the United States and internationally. The firm’s recent strategic initiative to return to rural markets is a result of increased production capacity and expanded coverage in service infrastructure within the domestic marketplace.

The company said its new propane (LPG) generators and battery storage systems are ideally suited for off-grid and backup/uninterrupted power supply (UPS) applications. Sales to rural telecoms will be made through a combination of direct sales and existing channel partners servicing our equipment in the field.

“We believe the FCC’s announcement of up to $20.4 billion in potential subsidies and grants accessible to over 400 small to mid-level rural telecom and cable providers will provide us with both a significant sales opportunity and the platform to demonstrate renewable technologies coupled with clean fuel generators providing low cost and sustainable energy to other applications and markets worldwide,” said Arthur Sams, Polar Power president and CEO.
