A Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) can reduce your electrical utility bill by storing electricity for peak usage periods when demand charges are incurred. In addition to reducing costs, a BESS provides your facility with greater resiliency during periods of power loss. When paired with an on-site solar system and/or EV chargers at your facility a BESS can be a key component to moving your facility toward 100% clean energy. A BESS can be paired with an on-site solar system and/or EV chargers at your facility.
Electricity savings with no major capital costs for you
A BESS draws power from the grid when it’s cheaper and stores it for use when energy costs are higher
Connects to your on-site solar or EV charging stations
Nexamp designs, builds, owns and operates the BESS. We are your partner for the long term
Nexamp recently completed a solar + storage installation with International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 103 in Dorchester, Mass. This project builds on the IBEW’s history of strong environmental stewardship and leadership with a solar and energy storage project that pairs 220 kW DC of solar on IBEW’s roof with 200 kWh of energy storage on the ground adjacent to the building. Located behind IBEW’s meter, the system is expected to produce 265,000 kWh of electricity per year, meeting over 60% of the building’s electricity needs with clean energy. Pairing the solar array with energy storage enables IBEW to store electricity produced by the solar array to use when it is most needed, reducing demand charges by up to 33 percent.
Many types of buildings can benefit from a Nexamp owned and operated BESS. Whether the priority is cost savings or resilience, energy storage provides a number of advantages that make a building more efficient and more desirable. Nexamp works within a wide range of applications:
Manufacturers know well the cost challenges of high demand charges. Installing an energy storage solution allows manufacturers to smooth out demand by drawing and storing power continuously and then making it available when demand spikes or providing backup power for greater resiliency.
Office buildings consume more than half of the electricity produced nationally for functions such as climate control, lighting and electronics. An energy storage solution provides office building owners with improved resilience and reduced environmental impact while also enabling them to smooth out the demand curve or provide back-up power.
Education campuses are well suited to the addition of energy storage because their energy consumption can peak during high demand charge periods, leading to skyrocketing costs. The potential environmental benefits of storage are also important as students and administrators look to maximize institutional sustainability efforts.
