Higher Wire Inc.
Higher Wire Inc. is revolutionizing the way the world views sustainable energy. We design and manufacture lithium battery assemblies at our facility in Tempe, AZ, using domestically-sourced components. We`re also solving environmental and supply-chain concerns by creating innovative technologies that make energy storage and generation more cost-effective and accessible, such as our patent-pending process that gives new life to old batteries. We safely disassemble used lithium battery packs and evaluate the individual cells within. Those which meet our strict grading criteria are repurposed into other forms of energy storage, which requires less energy and generates no chemical waste as compared to end-of-life recycling. We provide comprehensive Second Life solutions for municipalities, e-waste processing centers and battery end users to minimize their burden for processing, as well as design, engineering, installation and maintenance when deploying Second Life systems.
Sustainability is at the core of what we do. We use lean techniques to minimize waste and principles of circular economy in our designs. This allows us to reuse rather than destroy components and extend their useful life.
All of our products are fully recyclable and we also offer a battery repurposing program to transform nuisance waste back into useful assets. We have local recycling partners to process all circuit boards, conductors, metal and end-of-life lithium cells. We also downstream plastic cases to be melted and reused.
Deploying batteries into second life applications reduces their carbon footprint by 8-17% and energy use for processing by 2-6% as compared to recycling alone.
