What is Energy Storage Solutions?
Energy Storage Solutions is a cutting-edge program designed to help Connecticut become more resilient and alleviate strain on the electric grid. We're helping residents install home batteries and using them to help power the grid during times of high electricity demand.
How incentives work:
We will reward you for allowing us to use your battery throughout the year to reduce strain on the grid. You'll be paid a set amount for every kilowatt your battery contributes. Then, you can charge back up and be ready to do it all over again the next day. We will not draw power from your battery for at least 2 days before any predicted extreme weather event.
You'll also have access to incentives covering up to 50% of the cost of buying and installing your battery (maximum of $7,500).
You are required to participate in passive dispatch to access these incentives.
More on incentives:
You'll be paid for the average number of kilowatts your battery contributes to the electric grid per event over the course of the year. During set times in the summer (June to September) you'll earn $200 per kW. For November through March, you'll earn $25 per kW, and we won't discharge your battery more than 5 times.
No matter the time of year, we won't draw power from your battery two days before a predicted extreme weather event, so you'll be charged up and ready to go if the power goes out.
How long can a battery power my house?
How long a battery system can power your house depends on how big the system is (size and number of batteries) and which home appliances and systems you're running.
