Commercial energy storage

An energy storage solution supplements your solar production and reduces peak demand chargesCommercial solar installations offer attractive electricity cost savings to customers. However, they do not reliably reduce demand charges which can be responsible for 50% of commercial electric bills.

Adding energy storage to a solar array improves the economics of the entire installation and secures your investment against climbing demand charges.

When solar production is not optimal or demand spikes at your facility, energy storage can help bridge the gap, discharging to avoid costly spikes in demand.

SolarWorld has partnered with Green Charge Networks, the largest provider of commercial energy storage systems to provide commercial businesses with a comprehensive solution for optimizing your solar investment.

Together both systems work to lower your electric bill - solar by overall consumption and storage by spikes in power demand.
