KIGT says GridFabric enabled it to become fully certified much quicker and at a significantly lower cost

CleanSpark Inc (NASDAQ:CLSK) reported that its wholly owned GridFabric subsidiary has completed the process of OpenADR certification for KIGT Inc, an electric vehicle (EV) charging, software, and technology company focused on charging stations and related software for commercial, fleet, and residential vehicles.

CleanSpark said Open ADR certification will enable KIGT to enter new markets, participating alongside other, older EV charging companies in serving entities including major California Utilities and Hawaiian Electric Company Inc (HECO).

“GridFabric's Plaid product is one of the fastest ways for a company like KIGT to achieve full OpenADR certification across their platform. This process allows them to participate in utility load shifting programs, rapidly. Alternatively, the process of achieving certification without this program can result in months-long delays and substantial capital expenditures,” CleanSpark CEO Zach Bradford said in a statement.

He added: “This project is yet another successful deployment of GridFabric's unique offering within the broader EV charging industry. GridFabric has continued to expand its network of customers since its acquisition by CleanSpark in 2020. Following President Biden's remarks this week committing to the replacement of the entire Federal fleet with electric vehicles, we believe the focus on rapid certification of EV charging systems is poised to accelerate over the course of the coming years.”

KIGT Co-Founder Paul Francis also weighed in on the announcement, stating: “OpenADR certification will be a key driver for our growth in 2021, allowing us to work with leading utilities' demand response and incentive programs."

He added: “GridFabric made the process easy, as we were able to become fully certified much quicker and at a significantly lower cost than attempting the certification process alone.”

CleanSpark also announced that its Executive Chairman Matthew Schultz will be speaking on January 28 at 12pm ET at the RenMark Virtual Roadshow.
