Founder and president Jack Ripley has been active in the industrial power equipment field for more than 35 years. His involvement includes engineering, sales and management with manufacturers of batteries (lead acid and nickel cadmium), battery chargers and UPS systems.
In 1986, Jack founded Constant Power Manufacturing Co., in Houston, TX to manufacture a full line of Stationary Battery Chargers. In 1998 Jack sold Constant Power Mfg. Co.
Jack said he was too young to retire, and too old to learn anything new, so he formed Battery Service Co. to provide service on batteries, chargers and UPS systems. Since then, customers have also requested his support in procuring equipment.
Jack has now formed Standby Energy Inc. for the purpose of providing unequaled customer satisfaction for all their power quality needs.
The purpose of SEI is to provide complete system sales and service of backup and conditioned power systems (batteries, battery chargers, inverters, UPS systems, power conditioners, DC/DC converters, AC distribution panels, DC distribution panels, etc). SEI also provides monitoring equipment that can be configured to monitor the total system on a 24/7 basis and automatically alert desired personnel with as much warning time as wanted when pending system shut down is approaching.
