You can help the grid become more sustainable with your battery storage device.
Connected Solutions allows you to use your batteries to make the energy grid more efficient. This program will lower energy use during peak times, reducing pollution in the air and lowering overall electricity costs for residents.
How the Program Works
If you have a battery system in your home, you know that they are an important way to store energy and keep it available for back-up power if there is a blackout.
When you enroll the battery system from your home or business into the Connected Solutions program, you can earn incentives since the program will “borrow” energy from your stored batteries during peak times. This will help balance out the demand for energy on the grid and prevent too much electricity from being pulled from peak plants.
This program will send a signal from your system to the inverter. This will control your battery at specific, peak times. Usually, you won’t even notice anything is happening!
If you have a battery storage system that has a new solar panel system, if you would like to add a system to previously installed solar panels, or if you have a solitary battery system, all of these qualify for the Connected Solutions program.
You will receive $225 per kilowatt of energy that Mass Save borrows during the summer events. During the winter events, you will earn $50 per kilowatt.
During these events, different batteries will contribute different amounts. Over a typical year for the average battery, Connected Solutions would pay about $1,375.
