How Energy Storage Can Increase Your Power Resilience and Reliability


Batteries, in conjunction with commercial solar power systems, provide a secure, reliable source of energy that you can use during peak times or when your grid connection is down. This is a great way to ensure that your operations go smoothly without any disruptions, even during periods of high demand.

Key Considerations for Solar Battery Storage

When choosing an energy storage solution for your business, there are a few key considerations that you should keep in mind.


If your power demand is low, then a smaller battery would be sufficient to meet your needs. However, if your power demand is high—for example, if you’re running a large industrial facility—then you’ll want to opt for a larger battery with higher capacity.


You’ll need to know what the upfront cost is and what other costs might be involved in its installation and maintenance. Additionally, you’ll need to factor in any utility rebate or tax credits for which you may qualify for that could reduce the total cost of ownership.

Life Cycle

It’s important to determine how long the battery will last before it needs to be replaced. This can vary depending on usage patterns and environmental conditions, so it’s best to research this information in advance before choosing a system.

Benefits and Savings of Commercial Energy Storage

Backup Power

Solar energy has become increasingly popular due to its low maintenance costs and its ability to produce clean, renewable energy. But if something causes a power disruption, batteries will be able to provide backup power to prevent any disruption in service.

Grid Services

By participating in demand response programs, businesses can earn revenue by reducing energy consumption during peak hours or by providing stored energy back to the grid during times of high demand.

Financial Savings

As the cost of electricity increases over time, energy storage will allow you to store excess solar energy during peak times in order to use it later or when the cost of electricity is higher. This means that you could end up saving money on your energy bills over time – or at least offsetting the cost of installation with lower bills down the line.

Many of these systems are eligible for government incentives and rebates, making them an even more attractive option from a financial standpoint.

Increased Reliability

Energy storage ensures that you have consistent access to power 24/7.  You won’t have to worry about being without power during an outage or having your systems go down as a result of losing electricity – resulting in more reliable operations. With built-in monitoring, you’ll know exactly how much energy is available at any given time.
