Homeowners – testing solar/wind battery storage in four states


Solar and wind battery storage technologies are being developed and brought to market to address the need for power demand during peak hours and to act as a back-up power source for wind and solar ‘off’ times. The long-lasting battery technologies are now being tested in four states by two different start-ups; Aquion Energy and Ambri. One start-up is testing a design to enable homeowners and business to draw upon the battery during peak hours and thus, lower their costs. The second start-ups’ technology is designed to plug directly into the power grid to offset peak demand and reduce strain on the grid as a whole.
