Solar modules produce power during the daylight hours.
Solar with battery storage allows you to store power generated in the daytime and use it at night when your ever-increasing electricity rates continue to be more expensive.
If you don’t have energy storage with a commercial solar power system, you must use the utility grid to store your excess solar generation under the Net Energy Metering rule 2.0. When you need the additional electrical power from the grid, you will pay to bank that energy, or you could have stored the energy onsite.
With energy storage installed at your location, you do not lose the value of your extra solar generation and instead store it in the batteries. You control when it is used.
Battery energy storage systems will maximize your investment in your commercial solar power system — it saves you more money!
