The origins of “solar + storage” came from the earliest combinations of photovoltaic modules, power electronics, and lead-acid batteries used exclusively in the domain of what we now categorize as off-grid solar. With rapid advances in those core technologies, the applications for energy storage have broadened significantly, and energy storage is now central to solutions ranging from utility-connected residential systems to micro-grids providing reliable power for rural electrification.
Battery Comparison & Cost Calculator
Having difficulty explaining the real cost of energy storage options in a way your customers can understand? Discover’s Energy Storage Cost Calculator is a tool for installers that compares CAPEX vs OPEX of the major storage chemistries used in off-grid solar over a 10-year period.
Compare AES lithium to other lithium, tubular or lead acid battery systems. All you need is the manufacturer’s data sheet and battery specifications. Discover’s Energy Storage Cost Calculator generates a printable report that will help you demonstrate the impact of battery chemistry choice on your customer’s total cost of energy storage.
