Producing sustainable energy to meet demands
Energy savings from solar can be substantial. Market data suggests that the average commercial property owner in the U.S. can reduce overall energy costs by 75 percent by going solar.
Behind the meter (BTM) generation is particularly effective at reducing peak demand-based charges such as capacity, transmission, and distribution charges. As utilities continue to make investments in aging grid infrastructure, these charges are rising rapidly in many parts of the country. A solar BTM project saves customers millions of dollars by reducing these charges which account for more than half of the total cost of an electricity bill.
Power outages can cause businesses to lose revenue through reduced production or the inability to serve customers, due to wasted goods or damaged equipment. One way to help reduce those losses is with BTM generation. Since the energy system is physically located at the point-of-use, on-site, and doesn’t rely on the massive system of transmission and distribution lines that are increasingly vulnerable to weather, accidents, and potential threats against the grid.
Together with PowerFlex’s flexible financing options, decreases in the cost of solar panels and tax credits, going solar has never been more attractive. PowerFlex can offer solar as a standalone technology or coupled with a battery storage system to maximize the benefits and meet your energy needs. Installing battery storage allows you to target specific demand-based charges and reduce these charges without impacting business operations.
