Gross and Net Metering

Categories: Tags:
 

 Gross and Net Metering Energy storage systems are a great step forward for many net metered solar systems, yet many consumers don’t know if they are net, gross, or what the difference is. Below we have outlined the basic difference for you, and our belief to why energy storage systems will be an exciting opportunity for many solar system owners. Net Metering When energy is created through a net metered solar system, the energy is first fed to the home or business’ appliances and internal power needs, with any excess being exported to the grid. If any additional energy is read more…

 Going Off-Grid with an Energy Storage System Energy storage systems are fast becoming a popular investment for many homes or businesses that have, or are installing solar. With exciting technologies already on the market, including the Tesla Powerwall, and LG RESU, it would appear as if energy independence is finally within grasp for many. Yet do these technologies make you independent from the grid, and how essential is it to generate all of your own energy? These are some of the more frequently asked questions regarding energy storage systems, which we hope to answer for you below. Do energy storage read more…

The Boom of Energy Storage Systems

Categories: Tags:
 

 The Boom of Energy Storage Systems Energy storage systems were the buzz words in 2015, with everything from radio, TV, and newspapers featuring their impending popularity. Now with the start of the New Year rapidly disappearing behind us, and the hype only increasing, we’re outlining what the buzz is about. What are Energy Storage Systems? When the sun’s radiation is captured through a solar PV system, it is then converted from DC electricity into usable AC electricity to power homes and businesses. Usually, any excess energy that is created is sent back to the grid to be sold, and any extra energy needed from read more…

Solar Storage in the Australian Market

Categories: Tags:
 

 Solar Storage in the Australian Market Australia is considered one of the best markets for solar in the world, with the Clean Energy Council (CEC, 2015) reporting that over 1.42 million small-scale solar power systems had been installed by the end of 2015. These small-scale solar installations were responsible for generating about 2.1% of the country’s electricity that same year. As solar becomes more popular, technologies including solar storage systems are emerging to the Australian public as a way to become more energy independent. Solar storage systems work by capturing excess energy that may be generated from solar PV systems, and read more…
