As a Certified Tesla installer, OE Solar will find a battery energy storage system that fits your unique energy goals. OE Solar has the experience installing battery systems and understanding the unique interconnection and regulatory rules that get our systems commissioned.

At OE Solar, we understand that battery energy systems are not suited for all customers. Battery systems are best suited for clients that do not have reliable power, need a back up for critical systems or have very high demand charges.  Our experienced staff will perform energy studies to identify the  best solution for your needs.  We will even tell you “no” if a BESS system is just not right for your application. From energy security to savings money, batteries are finally developing the cost saving needs that companies care about.

What Is Peak Shaving with Battery Energy Solar Systems?

For most businesses, energy consumption varies throughout the workday, At the macro level, utility providers vary their pricing throughout the day: during times of high electricity demand, “peak” utility rates kick; when energy demand goes down, “off-peak” pricing shifts. 

With on-site battery storage, it’s possible to manage rising energy costs using a method known as “peak shaving.”

  • Your on-site storage system charges whenever electricity rates are at their lowest (i.e., during off-peak hours or with your free solar energy)

  • It then discharges during peak hours

This strategy allows you to save money without disrupting your normal operations. 

Peak shaving with batteries isn’t something you have to manage actively. With the correct configuration, your smart energy storage system can regulate charging and discharging without any direct intervention from you.
