Reduce Demand Charges With Commercial Energy Storage

Store energy for when your electricity demand is highest

Energy storage systems allow businesses to reduce utility demand charges through peak shaving. Utilizing expert analysis and design, our analysts will provide you with a clear picture of the financial benefits of adding energy storage for your business, with or without solar. By storing and shifting power to times when more is consumed and prices are at their peak, you can reduce the impact of high-cost energy from the utility.


Solar+Storage For Better Savings

Solar by itself can make a big impact on your bottom line, yet fluctuations in energy consumption spikes can have a huge impact your ability to minimize your utility bill. Your business is still susceptible to high demand peaks which can make up 50% or more of your electricity costs. Peak Demand Shaving can be accomplished with an energy storage system that allows you to moderate the swings in demand and reduce your overall costs by a predictable/bankable amount, providing an even better return-on-investment.

While commercial energy storage systems can see significant savings as a standalone solution, they can also provide a substantial added financial benefit when paired with a solar energy system. Combining the two maximizes the value of each other, as solar reduces reduces reliance on utility electricity and energy storage minimizes demand charges by regulating spikes in consumption.

Demand Reduction with Solar + Storage


Rebates and incentives are still available for installing a home energy storage system. Particularly, the most attractive incentive right now is California’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP). Adding this incentive, on top of the 30% federal tax credit, can nearly eliminate the cost of installing energy storage. The SGIP rebate, however, is highly competitive with limited funding. Be very wary of any contractor who “guarantees” the SGIP rebate, as the program is expected to go to a lottery (meaning there is no first-come-first-served system).

  • Energy storage is eligible for the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC).
  • Eligible for California’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP). *This rebate is limited.
