Reducing CO2 emissions and getting to net zero is the responsibility of each and every one of us—and an ultimate priority. By taking control of their energy supply, energy users can move the planet towards a more sustainable future, while also reducing their electricity bills, supporting the grid and making smarter energy management choices.
But choosing to reduce the overall carbon footprint is not without its challenges.
Deriving energy from renewable sources can be unpredictable. On cloudy or wintry days, solar panels cannot produce enough power to provide for your structure’s energy requirements. Conversely, there are times and seasons when solar panels produce more energy than required. There are also times where the energy supply within the grid is much higher than the demand.
This is where Energy Storage Systems (ESS) come in: to capture all surplus power and store it in batteries on-site for use at a later time when it is most needed.
Widely considered a great step towards energy independence, energy storage systems (ESS) allow storage of electricity when it is available and release of electricity whenever it’s required. Choosing the right ESS reduces reliance on the grid, minimizes the cost of electricity bills, as well as prevents waste of renewable energy—any surplus power is simply saved for a “rainy” day.
