New England Solar + Green offers two types of energy storage:
Back-up Power – In the event of a utility outage its always good to have a backup, right? This setup uses a battery(s) to discharge stored energy when grid power isn’t available. Whether it’s a planned outage or weather emergency you can keep the lights on. Fully scalable we can size the battery for running a few loads for a few hours or the entire house for days.
Integrating batteries with solar also has additional benefits
- Reducing the reliance on carbon fuels by using solar power not just when the sun is shining.
- Additional financial incentives from the state and utility provider that pay you for incorporating a battery.
- Fully eligible for the Federal ITC of 26% (What gas generator can say that?)
Off-Grid – Living off-grid without utility power requires special consideration and requirements. NES+G offers services and technology that integrates solar with additional power sources. We can incorporate power from solar, batteries, or generators to ensure that your energy demand is covered in the event of poor weather or low stage charge.
Energy control plays a key role when it comes to an off-grid energy supply. All components must be compatible with one another so the storage system is optimally used. If more solar power is available than needed, the batteries will be charged. If demand is greater than production, the electrical loads are supplied by the batteries.
