FranklinWH secures $25m to revolutionize whole-home energy management


FranklinWH Energy Storage Inc., a front-runner in whole-home energy management, announced a pivotal $25 million in Series B funding led by Particle Future. This substantial investment aims to accelerate FranklinWH’s growth and cement its role as an innovative leader in offering whole-home energy freedom across households in the United States and Puerto Rico.

Addressing the Vulnerable U.S. Energy Grid

The funding arrives at a critical juncture in U.S. energy transformation. A staggering 70% of the country’s electricity grid is over 25 years old and susceptible to disruptions. The U.S. Department of Energy has warned that two-thirds of the country could face power outages in summer 2023. Amid this backdrop and an evolving energy landscape that must accommodate bi-directional energy flow and diverse renewable energy sources, FranklinWH’s mission is more relevant than ever.
