May Updates from CEO

May Updates from CEO

The home-stretch in a marathon is always difficult. You shift your strategy from keeping pace to focusing on every stride you make that gets you to that finish line. And after keeping pace for so long, new obstacles can start to feel like impossible mountains to climb. For Fēnix and our home-stretch to get to our long-overdue installations, we've had some surprise mountains rise up between us and the finish line. Covid-19 has thrown us some really challenging curve balls. The strain of the delays has taken a toll on our team, we lost our COO, and had to trim…

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mother's day to any Fēnix moms! In honor of Mother's Day, we've decided to extend our installation discount one more week until May 17th, while we start reaching out to call our first customers to get installs scheduled. Give the Mom in your world the gift of not having to worry about her EVs battery aging anymore? And rather than create a new discount code for the Moms, instead we thought it would be a great opportunity to plug Electric Cars are for Girls one more time! So for today, it's Electric Cars are for Moms instead! Give Lynne…

Home/Fixed storage products are shipping!

We had planned on shipping our fixed storage batteries back in February but the Coronavirus pandemic forced our suppliers to put most of their operations on hold. However, now that the Covid-19 restrictions are easing, our suppliers are also now getting back to work, and so can we! All of our home/fixed storage products are ready to ship TODAY! While our EV installs are getting closer, and we're meeting with current and prospective installers every day getting our first markets ready for that launch, there's no wait for putting batteries to use immediately in your home, business, or even in…

New Zealand’s Alert Level 3!

New Zealand’s Alert Level 3!

This isn't exactly Fēnix Power's own news, but in this global economy and the global Covid-19 pandemic, progress made on one side of our big blue marble has real impacts on the other side! One of the delays that we at Fēnix have been trying to work around, is that a business partner of ours, EVs Enhanced, an EV business out of Christchurch, New Zealand, has been in something of a hibernation mode during the pandemic. New Zealand placed restrictions on shipping such that only necessary items could be shipped, effectively placing EVs Enhanced on pause indefinitely. EVs Enhanced starts…

BigBattery is fighting Covid!

BigBattery is fighting Covid!

Lately, I spend most of my days working on getting Fēnix Power through the various delays and impacts of Covid-19, part of my work today was discussing this with our supplier BigBattery. Today I had a great conversation with their CEO, Eric Lundgren, and learned more about the work they are doing during this pandemic, and they are truly doing some amazing work! So today, rather than posting about progress here at Fēnix, I want to take a moment to highlight the amazing work that Eric and his team have been doing.

AMA with John Bysinger

Some of our more internet-savvy followers may recognize the AMA or Ask Me Anything format popularized by Reddit, which is essentially a moderated Q&A session. Often on Reddit they enlist a celebrity or high-profile figure of some kind to open themselves up for a Q&A session. With all that is going on with Fēnix, recent delays related to Covid-19, supplier and funding challenges, and simply the many questions people have about our planned products and service, we have decided we should host our own AMA! We have created a post in our Facebook Customer Forum which will serve as the…

Covid, SBA and PPP Stimulus

Covid, SBA and PPP Stimulus

Hello Fēnix Power customers and fans, I know many of you are nervous about how this lockdown and virus economic shift will impact Fēnix Power and wondering if we'll make it through. I wanted to share that I've been working with our executive team, attorneys and accountant to evaluate all of the options available to us from the recently passed Payroll Protection Program in the CARES stimulus act. We've found two programs that we do qualify for, one through the Small Business Administration, and the PPP program itself through our business banking institution. We've submitted applications to both and are…
