Jane and Pierre are two engineers. They happen to be married, and they happen to care about the future.
Because they’re energy nerds, they knew that two-thirds of home energy use is for heating and hot water.
It’s a statistic a lot of people don’t know about. One of those stats that makes it pretty hard to enjoy the warmth of a gas-heated home.
So when their old gas furnace died, Jane and Pierre decided to take a crack at building a better system from the ground up - and use their own home as a test site.
Like a lot of people who care about the future, Jane and Pierre had solar panels* on their roof. Heat pumps were an option - a lot better than gas - but they tended to make poor use of that cheap, clean energy they were generating every day.
* You don't need solar for Harvest. But it's always nice.
They wanted to time-shift that cheap, clean energy to the corners of the day, when people use heat and hot water the most. Instead of storing energy in an expensive battery, they found a better time machine: a water tank.
Ideas turned into tinkering, tinkering turned into soldering. Their architect friend Dan Johnson joined the team, and Harvest was born.
With engineering wizard Evan Green leading the charge at the workbench and at the factory, the Harvest Pod® was born. The team grew slowly but surely as it worked (and worked, and worked) to turn this simple idea – storing cheap, clean energy in a hot water tank – into a factory-assembled system that’s reliable and easy to install.
Harvest got comfier, more reliable, and flexible. Fast-forward a few years, and their smart thermal battery system is all grown up.
Harvest has won lots of awards from places that matter. It’s been cutting bills and emissions and keeping people company throughout the West Coast for years. And now, Harvest is ready to move in with you.
