Many people don’t realize this, but there are actually two different types of rooftop solar systems. Which you chose for your business will depend on whether it’s more economical to simply offset peak energy costs or to export energy back to the grid.
That’s a great question. This is highly regulated in Australia. By law, power suppliers need to keep voltage at a certain level. If levels are too high, they run the risk of causing electrical shorts, which can damage equipment, or cause fires or other damage. If an energy supplier delivers power at higher voltages, even accidentally, they can be fined by regulators. As you might imagine, utilities don’t want to pay these fines. As such, they often don’t allow solar rooftops to export their excess energy back to the grid, which can cause voltage spikes.
That’s where our technology comes in. With our smart battery storage systems, we’re able to regulate the voltage, making excess energy safe for export. That’s just one way we work to save our clients money.
