|**Capacity Ratio = Total Capacity / Usable Capacity|
Power and capacity are important, but far from the whole story. When shopping for a car, do you look for the fastest car or the car with the biggest gas tank? Usually, people buy the car with the best features to meet their needs: AWD to get to the mountains more frequently, or airbags to carry their family safely to school. The Pika Energy Island comes with a range of unique capabilities that put its power and capacity to better use for you. These capabilities are what sets our system above the rest.
