Save More with Commercial Solar Energy Storage

Solar generation cuts monthly energy bills and emissions. Energy storage amplifies those savings by shaving demand and controlling usage costs. Storage also helps eliminate the need for costly, seldom-used, high-emitting “peaker plants” that utilities build to keep up with demand spikes. Combining solar and storage creates more ways to save and can be a winning combination for customers with the right energy profile.

How Energy Storage Works

The curve created by the up and down movement of your monthly energy bills is called the load profile. Businesses with a lot of fluctuation have a “spiky” load associated with drastic shifts throughout the day in how much energy they are consuming. Storage helps reduce that spike.

Components of an energy storage system:

During daylight, your solar system uses batteries to store excess energy it generates.

Intelligent software coordinates between solar and storage, optimizing how and when energy is utilized.

Stored energy can be released:

  • When rates are high
  • To keep supply at a consistent level and avoid peak demand charges
  • To stay below a certain energy use threshold and avoid moving into a higher rate tariff
