USA: How to save money with AlphaESS


In the wake of investing in PV systems, homeowners often want to know how they can best optimize their system's production and further get independent of the grid. One of the most efficient upgrades is the addition of a solar battery.


Moreover, with an AlphaESS SMILE-SP energy storage system, one of our customers in the United States who owns a medical center has obviously got rewarded more.


Once the AlphaESS system was installed, the 24/7 AlphaCloud monitoring caught a suspicious number of 60kWh consumption every day, revealed later came from a standby radiant heater, which has totally wasted around $30,000 ever since 2010!  


And now look at the perfect energy flow in the diagram below. After solving the issue of waste, the solar battery system is now able to cover all consumption of the whole property and help the owner achieve $0 electricity bill.


If we could have come up with this at the very beginning, we would save much more for our dearest customer in this case.


More about the system:

Integrated with the solar panels, this SMILE-SP can store 41kWh energy for this medical center to fulfill the daily load demand and help the customer cut bills.

Loadshifting: Store electricity during off-peak time and shift energy to be used at peak time. You can reduce the demand charge by flattening the energy curve.

Make full use of #solar power: Store the surplus PV generation in the battery and smartly discharge the energy to match your electricity usage.
