Battery Storage For Your Business
Capitalise on energy savings by storing excess solar generation and using it when your business needs it or when your variable rate electricity rate is at its highest. Energy storage will allow you to offset peak demand, save on electricity purchased. It is also possible to generate an additional revenue stream through demand-side response to the national grid.
How does it work?
The concept of energy storage is relatively simple: whilst your solar panels are generating energy from the sun during the daytime, the energy will firstly power your business loads, all the extra energy being generated that you are not using will be diverted to the energy storage device. Once the batteries are fully charged the extra energy is then fed back into the national grid. When the panels are producing less energy than the business is demanding, the inverter will pull the free stored energy from the battery to feed the demand from the business.
In addition to this the energy storage technology can be programmed to prioritise its usage for peak shaving, to reduce TUoS (Transmission use of System) and DuoS ( Distribution Use of charges) charges for your business.
It is also possible for your energy storage system to participate through a commercial aggregator to offer demand-side response to the national grid. You will be paid in return for your energy storage system being used to help balance the National Grid in times of need.
Why should my business have energy storage?
- Use free solar electricity at times of high demand to reduce peak time charges
- Use stored energy to offset base load usage and lower electricity bills
- Generate additional revenue through offering a demand-side response for the National Grid
- Reduce reliance on energy companies
- Protect yourself against rises in energy prices
- Can be retro fitted
