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.
Demand Response (DR) helps keep the lights on! Different programs address electric grid constraints at various levels. Your participation in multiple programs helps support all types of grid emergencies, whether they are local or grid-wide.
Energy storage represents an exciting market opportunity for large commercial and industrial (C&I) energy users. Whether as a standalone asset or in combination with solar PV or other on-site generation resources, energy storage enables large energy users to lower their energy spend by managing costly demand charges on their bill and enabling participation in other lucrative market opportunities, such as demand response and government incentive programs.
With nine backup generators on-site, this hospital was well-positioned to earn payments through ERCOT’s demand response (DR) program in Texas, which compensates large energy users that agree to reduce energy consumption when the grid is under duress.
