Why you should join Moxion Power Co.

Moxion Power manufactures commercial-scale electric generators and provides temporary-power-as-a-service to customers in the construction, events and entertainment, data center, and electrified transportation industries.

Moxion's logistics team remotely monitors our gensets and provides battery charging/swapping services so our customers never have to worry about running out of power. Moxion has signed LOI’s with several of the largest construction firms in California and is backed by Energy Impact Partners, Y Combinator, Liquid 2 ventures and Tamarack Global.
