These are not small problems, but our smart grid solutions are helping to create a cleaner, safer and more reliable energy future for all. Alongside our utility partners, we are building virtual power plants (VPPs) that deliver a wide range of benefits:
VPPs address load growth without building new carbon-intensive infrastructure, allowing for the decommissioning of fossil-fuel infrastructure and supporting sustainability targets.
Manage reliability during grid disturbances by stabilizing frequency following the sudden gains or losses of generation or load with VPPs.
Distributed energy storage enables the use of low cost solar power and delivers the reliability that end-use customers are seeking, while supporting their broader community and the environment.
As a demand response solution, VPPs can balance the supply of electricity on the network by adjusting or controlling the load during periods of peak demand.
Renewable Energy Balancing
The network of distributed energy storage assets can balance the overall intermittency and variability of renewable energy generation, to include excess production.
Distributed energy resources can reduce the strain on distribution and transmission infrastructure and enable utilities to defer or avoid infrastructure upgrades.
Enhanced Customer Experience
Comprehensive energy dashboard and integrated offerings make power personal for homeowners and businesses.
Robust financing options allow utilities to offer clean, reliable back-up power to customers for no upfront cost.
A vast network of local solar and battery installers and technology partners enables the quick deployment of distributed energy resources at scale.
