Energy storage is about to take off

  • Storage closes the gap between the peak time when solar PV generates electricity and the time of peak electricity demand.
  • Storage helps smooth out voltage fluctuations that damage sensitive equipment.
  • Storage provides power when demand surges and power prices spike.
  • Storage can also charge EVs in commercial settings with abundant electricity from prime-time solar PV generation.
  • Renewable energy
  • Backup power
  • Peak shaving
  • Power conditioning
  • Spinning reserves
  • Load shifting
  • Developing a standardized list of required documents, and where possible, an over-the-counter or electronic approval process.
  • Expediting permitting for solar PV carports that generate and/or have the capacity to store a certain percentage of the project’s energy needs.
  • Waiving permitting and plan check fees (up to a certain amount, if desired) for solar PV carports and energy storage systems.
