How to Create a Business Case for Solar + Storage

Tuesday, September 25
11:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: Storage Central: Booth 3386

Sponsored By: 

Over the past decade, we have witnessed dramatic declines in the installed cost of solar, and we are now seeing a similar trend in storage. These trends, coupled with smart controls and microgrid technologies, are redefining how customers purchase electricity from the utility. While utility customers have likely heard a lot about this and are excited about the potential benefits, many do not have the tools to understand how these technologies can benefit them. This presentation will demonstrate how utility customers can gain these insights to make smart investments.
Attendees will learn about the basics of solar, storage, smart controls, and utility bills. They will also learn how these can be combined to create new business opportunities and reduce energy costs.
