ONE BENEFIT OF THE BRONCO POWER BOOST IS ITS ABILITY TO REMOVE LOAD FROM THE POWER SYSTEM WHEN THERE IS AN INBALANCE BETWEEN THE ELECTRICITY AVAILABLE AND THE DEMAND FOR ELECTRICITY. LOAD SHEDDING IS ACCOMPLISHED USING THE BRONCO SYSTEM AND SOFTWARE CONTROLLED BY THE UTILITY COMPANY VIA A WIFI CONNECTION.
LOAD SHEDDING IS DONE TO PROTECT NATIONAL & LOCAL POWER SYSTEMS FROM COLLAPSING.

The Bronco Power Boost can power essentials like WiFi, your home security system, refrigeration, overhead fans and lighting for up to 30 hours. It cannot, however, power all electrical in your home, particularly central air and heat. A portable AC unit can be powered by the Bronco Power Boost, but central air pulls far too much power for the Bronco Wall Battery to keep it running.
In addition to the essentials like lights and refrigeration, items that are often overlooked but very much capable of being powered by the Bronco Power Boost include: your phone charger, internet modem and router, TV and video game consoles, and other small electrical items that do not have heating elements.
One wall battery can power your home essentials for up to 30 hours. You can install a second wall battery which extends the power to 60 hours, depending on your electrical needs. The Bronco Power Boost has been used in a variety of creative use cases, so let us know what you need and we can connect you with a professional to help design the best setup for your home or business.

While the requirements of HOAs vary by neighborhood, we have found that the Bronco Power Boost is a great alternative to a home standby generator for these reasons: the wall battery can be installed in your garage (out of sight), it does not emit noise, and it does not need ventilation like a home standby generator.

Your installer can assist with navigating the permit process and ensuring you submit the necessary information to secure a permit.
Unless you are licensed electrician, we do not recommend homeowners attempt to install the Bronco Power wall battery. We can connect you with a licensed electrician in your area to safely install your wall battery.
You can work with the licensed electrical contractor you hire for installation to determine the best location for your wall battery. Given California’s stringent permitting requirements, we recommend outdoor installation for all units with a NEMA 3R enclosure to protect against weather.
