"Wipomo" stands for "Wireless Power in Motion"

Wipomo stands for “Wireless Power in Motion”, however, our definition of wireless power goes beyond inductive power transfer and includes technologies that can improve energy efficiency and versatility in transportation and buildings, like solar power, electric vehicles, emergency backup and microgrids.

"Power when you want it, where you want it, day or night - even during a utility blackout."

Our mission is to deliver clean-air technology solutions that reduce energy use, maintenance costs, and emissions.

Wipomo's Energy Ecosystem puts you "On the Road to Energy Independence". Save money, create jobs, make your own energy, and no more blackouts!

Join the Energy Ecosystem where it makes the most sense for you and never again be at the mercy of astronomical energy rate hikes.
