What happens when solar and batteries join forces? Together they can make the electric grid optional for many customers.
The Economics of Demand Flexibility
Utility customers have had three options for meeting their electricity needs: buy it, make it, or eliminate it. But now they have a fourth option: to shift it through demand flexibility.
WHY IT MATTERS
Demand flexibility can unlock $13 billion per year of avoided grid investment and 10 to 40% savings on customer bills.

Grid-connected solar-plus-battery systems are coming, and soon could supply the majority of customers' electricity needs.
Most batteries deliver a single, primary service. Yet customer-sited, multi-use batteries can deliver the most services and value to customers and the grid.
