Qmerit – a North American-based company focused on providing management solutions for EV chargers and other all-electric-related technologies – has announced that it has become the preferred installer of residential products from GM Energy.
Building off a previous relationship between the two entities, Qmerit’s network of certified electricians will serve to ensure a seamless installation and integration of GM Energy’s residential products, which includes items like Ultium Home Energy System and Ultium Home Energy Storage.
“As noted in our new white paper Electrification2030, America’s sweeping transition toward a clean-energy electrical grid will hinge greatly on new home-based products and services,” Qmerit founder and CEO Tracy Price stated. “GM Energy’s suite of residential products and services will substantially help meet that crucial need, and we’re excited and proud to partner with GM Energy to bring those offerings to homes nationwide.”
When combined with General Motors’ Energy Cloud software, Qmerit will work to grant consumers the ability to manage energy flow to-and-from their home and all-electric vehicle. In doing this, customers will be able to access a source of power in the event of an outage, as well as provide greater flexibility on a day-to-day basis.
“As GM continues to advance its vision of an all-electric future, our new energy management product and service offerings will help make EV ownership an even more compelling option,” GM Energy Vice President Wade Sheffer claimed in a prepared statement. “By expanding our collaboration with Qmerit as a preferred installer, more customers will have access to the extended benefits of EV technology and participate in a larger energy ecosystem than ever before.”
For reference, GM Energy was introduced way back in October 2022 to bridge the existing Ultium Charge 360 service with the then-new Ultium Home and Ultium Commercial services in an effort to create an energy ecosystem where consumers can control their energy needs. Through this partnership with Qmerit, GM Energy takes another step towards this initiative.
