SOLAR + ENERGY STORAGE: The Smart Grid Concept that Generates Revenue

Combining energy storage with solar provides many benefits and is a major step towards the smart grid concept. The host of grid services that come with storage added to the benefits of solar mean that you can generate electricity, use what you need and then store or export the rest. The net result is effective kWh costs that are a fraction of what you pay today.

From a technical standpoint, installing energy storage with new or existing solar PV systems is an ideal way to both ease grid frequency fluctuations and help smooth generation peaks caused by the renewable energy’s variable load profile.

BENEFITS:

  • Extremely low effective kWh costs for contract life time
  • No capital expenditure with funded options
  • No operational expenditure
  • Use, store or export all generated electricity
