Energy Storage Solutions for Buildings & Communities

Improve Your Bottomline with Energy Storage 

For commercial and industrial (C&I) building owners, battery installations can increase storm preparedness and resilience, and can provide backup power when the grid goes down.  Even more beneficial, your battery systems provide an opportunity for peak demand management, saving you money on monthly demand costs on blue-sky days. 

If you install a battery alongside solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, you can charge when the sun is out, further increasing your opportunity for energy savings.  

Incentives Add Up to Savings 

The Energy Storage Solutions program provides both upfront and performance incentives to reduce the cost of installing battery storage systems.: 

 Upfront incentives reduce up to 50% of the battery’s cost in exchange for allowing the battery to reduce electrical grid stress on hot summer days for 10 years. 

Performance incentives are paid twice a year for 10 years based on how much average power the battery contributes to the grid during critical periods. 

Incentive adders are available to Priority Customers (maximum incentive is capped at 50% of cost):
