Solar + Battery Storage
Solar systems are excellent at reducing a facility's energy consumption during the day, but cease to operate after sunset. Solar power stored by batteries can be dispatched at targeted intervals to reduce usage during early evening hours when electricity often costs the most. Additionally, batteries can be configured to provide back-up power to critical systems, or utilized to participate in ancillary services markets to help balance transmission systems.
As witnessed with solar panels, the technology and economics associated with batteries have both rapidly improved over time. Additionally, numerous markets are offering financial incentives when battery storage is combined with solar installations.
