Through a collaborative and cooperative effort, utilities and residential solar storage owners could build a stronger, more reliable distributed electrical grid. To move forward, it’s necessary to take advantage of new technology, open up communication and give up control. The technology is here, and costs are down, making a battery-based distributed grid more possible now than ever. With a distributed grid, everyone wins. Using advanced tech and communication The growth and advancement of technology, especially in the sola...
