Pacific Union College in Napa Valley, California will soon install a 1-MW energy storage system from Green Charge.
The system is expected to save the college nearly $800,000 over the 10-year agreement with the college, with revenues expected to come through demand charge reduction and demand response programs through Pacific Gas and Electric Company.
“We see daily the many challenges organizations such as colleges, universities, manufacturers, transit systems, and utility suppliers have from variations in grid-provided power quality,” said Vic Shao, CEO at Green Charge. “Commercial energy storage is a viable solution to provide quality power to our customers located toward the end of distribution lines while providing substantial savings.”
