RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif.

Powerstorm ESS (OTC: PSTO) (“Powerstorm” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce they have been extended an invitation for membership to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), which is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that have shown their commitment to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption efforts.

Powerstorm ESS stresses the importance of maintaining ethical and sustainable business practices under any circumstances. “Powerstorm ESS’ social responsibility activities are an integrated part of our business strategy,” says CEO Mike Freni. “They don’t just go away because we didn’t find the funding to execute in time or we simply had a bad year.” Joining the UNGC will allow Powerstorm ESS to consistently examine their standards of practice, look for potential for growth and improvement in their current methods, and collaborate with other businesses to incorporate these principles into mainstream business operations. “Our strengths lie in our abilities to spur innovation in process as well as products, what we do from our foundation up is, on a larger scale, develop programs that will educate and permanently help create a better standard of living for people in the most remote parts of the world who are part of the future enlightened communities,” Freni adds.

Reliable sources of energy are necessary for the operation and maintenance of many industries, such as telecommunication tower networks, manufacturing and mining. They are also a crucial part of supporting humanitarian efforts in times of crisis, such as the current Ebola epidemic. Powerstorm ESS’ modular energy storage systems are capable of meeting the needs of these varied applications, as well as providing stable power for rural electrification, which is an issue at the heart of the company. Access to power means access to a myriad of other things that greatly improve the quality of life available to people. “We have the vision and goal to make a difference to power the people and providing the access to clean water, communication, education, and health care – in a sensible way,” says Freni.
