When the grid needs it the most.
Utilities and grid operators are rolling out programs that pay homeowners for their stored solar energy when the grid needs it the most. As a result, they don’t need to turn to the kinds of expensive, polluting power plants that traditionally address peak power demand. Homeowners in return can receive hundreds to thousands of dollars for participation. A stable grid, powered by sustainable energy, and extra money for homeowners — it’s a win-win-win.
