Minimizing costly demand charges via peak shaving with solar and energy storage
ARE YOU PAYING COSTLY DEMAND CHARGES?
Find out how to eliminate the most expensive part of your utility bill.
Many businesses pay demand charges, yet few have a strategy for managing those charges. Demand charges can account for 30-70% of a utility bill. Managing demand charges is a critical part of any strategy to control energy costs.
The best way to manage demand charges is with peak shaving. Peak shaving involves proactively controlling energy use to lower and smooth peak demand, which reduces costs.
We’ve figured out how to combine several cutting-edge technologies – including solar power, battery energy storage, and predictive algorithms – into one integrated system to shave peak demand charges and increase renewable energy share in a cost-effective way.
These advanced technology systems have allowed us to help our customers control energy costs and gain a competitive advantage by significantly reducing operating expenses.
