Commercial Energy Storage
Commercial Solar Energy Storage
Helping Your Business Save Money in Connecticut & Westchester County, NY
More commercial properties than ever before are turning to solar panels to get clean, sustainable energy to power their business. The savings and reliability, coupled with an implicit show of support for renewable energy that is important to more and more consumers, has proven to be an exciting prospect for countless commercial property owners across Connecticut and Westchester County, NY. Solar panels all on their own have a great deal to offer to any business, but the advantages of solar energy can be magnified considerably by pairing them with a robust energy storage system.
This option allows you to not only enjoy the solar power available when the sun is plentiful, but to draw from excess energy you stored even while the system is not actively generating. Having access to that energy can minimize your dependence on energy provided by your local utility system, eliminate it entirely, and may even give you the option of net metering, or selling back excess energy for credit.

Putting Energy Storage to Work for You
Thanks to the overall improvements seen in storage performance, the decline in cost, and the rise in initiatives encouraging a dual purchase, installing solar panels alongside storage systems has never been more viable. For commercial clients, energy storage systems generally resemble large, highly advanced refrigerators installed on the exterior of the building.
Commercial energy storage is most often utilized with one or more of these goals in mind:
- Reducing “congestion” on the grid by relying on solar energy during peak hours, often resulting in compensation by the utility company
- Adjusting when grid electricity is utilized to reduce costs
- Reducing load during peak hours to minimize demand charges
Backed by highly intelligent software, these storage systems charge while the solar panels are actively generating, then strategically pull from the batteries to optimize as much as possible.
Energy Storage for Businesses
If you really want to make a major impact on your commercial utility bill, the key is reducing your demand charges. Demand charges are calculated by finding the time interval with the highest (peak) average power (in kilowatts) drawn from the grid, looking across the entire billing cycle. That number is then multiplied by the tariff’s demand charge (priced in dollars per kilowatt) to determine your monthly bill. This charge can make up around 50% of your bill and sometimes more. If these peaks can be reduced, so can your demand charges.
When energy storage is paired with commercial solar, it makes your energy solution way more viable. The solar provides clean energy that heavily reduces the overall site load. The storage system coordinates by using the stored energy in a smarter way to maximize your benefit. The solar will charge the batteries during the day and with the use of predictive analytics, the battery will discharge at calculated times to reduce the demand peaks. This will have no effect on your day-to-day operations while saving your company a lot of money. Savings that can pay for the cost of the battery storage system and then some.
