Solar and Storage
Save money on your electricity supply and demand spend by installing solar plus storage.
Energy costs and demand charges directly impact your bottom line
According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), total world energy consumption is expected to rise 28% by 2040. Add in an aging grid infrastructure and rising fuel costs and the future of traditional energy supply looks very expensive.
Additionally, prices for grid electricity are unpredictable and can vary widely from month to month—making forecasting operating expenses difficult—and demand charges to run your business during peak times can constitute greater than 50% of your energy bill. By installing a Solar and Storage solution, you can lock in the price of your electricity at a price substantially lower than from the utility and reduce your peak spend.
Solar is a truly sustainable energy solution
Every day, you could be drawing on a natural and sustainable resource to power your business and reduce reliance on the grid. Solar power enables you to generate your own electricity onsite by converting the power of the sun into 100% renewable electricity, helping you meet your corporate sustainability goals. As solar power does not have any pollutants or carbon emissions, you will significantly reduce your impact on the environment.
Together, Solar and Storage work together to save you significantly more money
Combining solar with storage results in an integrated solution providing relief from ever-increasing demand charges and the opportunity to monetize your energy. The addition of storage provides flexibility and reduces energy spend when it is at its most expensive during peak hours.
- Solar saves you money on your kWh energy charges
- Storage saves you money on your kW demand charges
Solar power unlocks value from your roof or parking lot
Solar is designed to generate electricity using free fuel from the sun, reducing your operating expenses and carbon footprint. Solar can even unlock value from otherwise unused assets like your roof or parking lot to create an additional revenue stream.
What is Solar and Storage?
Solar power is a renewable source of generation that works by absorbing sunlight and converting it into electricity. Solar panels are mounted on the roof of a building, on a carport, or on the ground (such as in a field).
The power generated can be used directly onsite, stored for later use to lower energy costs during peak times or, in some cases, fed back into the grid to create an additional revenue stream. It is 100% sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective – ideal for businesses that want to reduce both energy costs and carbon emissions.
