Financing Energy Storage Projects: Assessing Risks — Part Two https://t.co/EdxVFamAX1

Distributed energy storage projects offer two main sources of revenue. Capacity payments from the local utility are one. Power purchase agreements providing capacity payments for distributed energy storage systems with terms of 10 years or more are becoming customary in California. Payments for demand charge management for on-site load are another. Demand charge management occurs when electricity is drawn from the during times when grid prices are highest. By drawing on the battery for power at those times, customers avoid expensive demand response charges. Although the customer’s cost savings vary, developers can lock in a revenue stream by charging customers a fixed monthly fee based on projected cost savings.
