What Developers Need to Know About Financing Commercial Solar + Storage

The combination of solar and energy storage is becoming more urgent due to the environmental necessity and economic benefits, such as bill savings, resiliency, and preventing grid blackouts. Pairing battery storage to an existing solar system enables a more significant opportunity for savings in most cases. The financing options for energy storage are starting to catch up with solar, even though some differences remain, however, developers are working to take advantage of the various options for solar + storage.

Demand Charge Savings from Solar PV – The Definitive Guide

Two of our country’s top national energy laboratories published an awesome study last month entitled ‘Exploring Demand Charge Savings from Commercial Solar’. This is the second report in a three-part series, which looks at how solar PV reduces demand charges, published collaboratively by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Here are the links to the report:
