Peak loads are a reality in many operations that have considerably greater electricity consumption at certain times. These peaks drive up electricity bills, because electricity providers need to keep the output available constantly as a precaution, even if it is only briefly required. This makes for difficult planning, as they need to work out if and when the next peak will happen. To account for this uncertainty, providers raise their bills. Just one peak load can increase electricity bills for years.
That’s where TESVOLT battery storage systems come into play. They can control the electricity drawn by installations and machines so that peak load energy needs are taken straight from battery cells rather than from the grid. In doing so, they smooth out the peak loads, prevent increased electricity tariffs and cut operating costs.
If a peak load arises, the battery storage system provides additional electricity alongside that drawn from the grid. In doing so, the amount of electricity drawn from the grid is reduced to a specified amount. The storage system is then continually charged from the utility grid or from a PV installation.
