Replace gas and diesel generators with quiet, clean power

Portable Electric gave the Vancouver International Soccer Festival the power to choose clean, renewable energy. I am thrilled they are operating in Vancouver and impressed at the capability of their battery systems. We will certainly get them to power our entire event next year!
Adri, Founder and Director of Vancouver International Soccer Festival
I have been looking for this type of solution that Portable Electric offers for some time. I was always thinking that the noisy, smelly gas powered generator were taking away from our events. Portable Electric delivered exactly what they said they would. Thank you
Bernard Leclair, Vancouver Pride Director
We were excited to Welcome Portable Electric to help power our Blessed Coast Festival” this year and in doing so, we were blown away!!! The level of stewardship the team holds, over this incredible technology, made the difference in smoothly running our sound and lighting off Silent, efficient Renewable Energy, was a miracle we had only dreamed of years ago. What a heavenly feeling!
Kybor Garner, Blessed Coast
Portable Electric is about to change the way festivals sound and smell forever. The inaugural Vancouver Mural Festival launched with 80,000 people celebrating on Main Street and one of the best parts of the event was the “festival staple” that was missing: stinky gas generators and rumbling motors behind every stage and food cart. Instead: quiet, clean power! Efficient and environmentally friendly! We look forward to the impending festival power revolution.
Andrea Curtis, Vancouver Mural Festival

Portable Electric is a Vancouver company renting silent, pollution-free, power stations to anyone who needs electricity when there’s no place to plug in. The smaller unit, the VoltStack Mini, will run a party sound system for 15-20 hours straight. Its big brother, the VoltStack Boss, will energize a film set: Lights, cameras, the works, and larger stages and events. In essence, it’s a powerful EV-grade rechargeable batter-system designed and manufactured in British Columbia.
When compared with a traditional diesel generator, the VoltStack is a healthier, safer, quieter, cleaner and more convenient power source. It comes fully charged, is maintenance-free, and costs about the same to rent when you include fuel.
People hosting music festivals, street fairs, sporting events, weddings, parties, long-table dinners, and anyone else in Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, the Okanagan, and Calgary who needs reliable electricity when there’s no place to plug in—without the noise, exhaust, and safety concerns associated with a diesel generator.
The VoltStack Mini is a compact and sleek 100-pound stainless-steel box on casters. Two people can carry it together, or one can easily push it on its wheels. The VoltStack Boss is a stylish futuristic trailer which can be towed to any location.
