Briggs & Stratton, SimpliPhi Power to display a full lineup of energy storage solutions

ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 19, 2022) – For the first time since its acquisition of energy storage systems manufacturer SimpliPhi Power (SimpliPhi) in late 2021, Briggs & Stratton and SimpliPhi will come together as Briggs & Stratton Energy Solutions at the 2022 RE+ Tradeshow. Featuring a full line-up of its newly expanded energy solutions products including its latest innovation, the SimpliPHI™ Energy Storage System (ESS), the Briggs & Stratton Energy Solutions booth (#3680) will be located in the Anaheim Convention Center.

“We are excited to display the combined expertise of Briggs & Stratton and SimpliPhi at RE+,”  said Tom Rugg, senior vice president and president — Energy Solutions at Briggs & Stratton. ”This show is a great opportunity to showcase the breadth of energy and standby power solutions we have to offer as we strive to deliver more choice and more control to our customers than ever before.”

With the strategic acquisition of SimpliPhi, Briggs & Stratton is now able to offer a full line of scalable, intelligent energy storage products along with its best-in-class standby generators. At RE+, Briggs & Stratton Energy Solutions will have the opportunity to showcase its flagship offering — the SimpliPHI ESS.
