New York City is one of the most energy-intensive urban environments in the world, approaching 14 GW of demand. As an alternative to building out traditional grid infrastructure, Con Edison and other utilities are looking at microgrids to cover peak loading (and improve load factor), optimize delivery systems, and make the grid more efficient and reliable.
Distributed energy resources (DERs), such as energy storage and combined solar-plus-storage systems, are becoming increasingly valuable for both New York’s electric grid and the commercial and industrial (C&I) energy consumers that rely on it.
Ontario organizations paid approximately $12B in Global Adjustment (GA) charges last year. Did your business pay more than it had to? Those that can strategically lower their demand during system peaks can drastically reduce their GA charges, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. Ontario businesses work with Enel X to use qualified generators to reduce GA costs with minimal impact on operations.
