The SmartStorage® System Cuts

Demand Charges

WHAT YOU PAY NOW

For businesses, peak demand charges in some cases can represent more than 50 percent of a company's monthly utility bill, significantly affecting their bottom line.

Your 'demand' is the highest spike of instantaneous electricity you consume in a month.

For Example: Any time periodic electric loads (like air conditioners, manufacturing equipment, elevators, etc.) operate at the same time, you get a spike in demand. Those spikes can cost you $100s-$1000s a month in peak demand charges.

The SmartStorage® system predicts demand spikes to cut expensive demand charges.

SmartStorage® Energy Storage System

Knows When to Discharge

SAVINGS WITH SMARTSTORAGE® SYSTEM

The SmartStorage® system truly is an "intelligent" storage system. This is not battery backup power. Instead, it keeps instantaneous demand power in reserve.

As your building demand starts to spike, the intelligent, predictive controllers trigger a rapid power discharge to offset the spike.

The result is your demand is cut.

This allows commercial and industrial building owners and operators to take control of their energy bills and their bottom line without spending countless hours managing their systems. The SmartStorage® system takes care of all the complexities associated with managing its customers' power usage.

SmartStorage® System + Solar =

Triple Benefits

SAVINGS WITH THE SMARTSTORAGE® SYSTEM AND SOLAR

Your electricity bill has two parts: demand charges and energy charges.

Solar PV offsets energy charges but not demand charges. By combining the SmartStorage® system with solar PV, businesses save on both energy and demand.

The incentives for the business triple. You may get the Investment Tax Credit for both solar and storage, plus any available state rebates for storage.

HOW IT WORKS

The SmartStorage® system integrates advanced lithium-ion batteries with Sharp's predictive learning load controller. The batteries charge at night and release at peak times during the day. Smart metering gathers real-time data on your building power needs. Online monitoring allows you to watch performance while sending 24/7 status updates for maintenance.
