Thoughts - musings on solar panels and renewable energy

This page is for thoughts and ideas about solar and the environment in general.  I'm passionate about solar and think and read about it daily.  This will be a space for these thoughts.

Utilities pay to use residential batteries

Matt Helms

A utility in New England is paying some of their customers that have solar and batteries to use them during peak load times. A single battery pack could earn the owner up to $1,000 during one summer. This program helps the utility reduce their peak demand and reduces the requirement to build out more infrastructure. There is also another utility in Vermont, Green Mountain Power, that will install batteries in a customer’s home for $30 a month allowing them to ride out grid outages.
