Learn about the new Battery Storage for Single Family Homes Cost-Effectiveness Study!

About this event

Local jurisdiction staff and other interested stakeholders are warmly invited to join us for a presentation on the results of our newly-completed analysis of battery storage for single family homes. The study objective was to identify cost-effective storage system measure combinations in new and existing single family homes that meet the requirements to support adoption of a reach code. Stakeholders interested in adopting a storage system ordinance will be particularly interested in this webinar.

Battery storage systems are beneficial to the occupant and the utility grid by serving the primary functions of daily cycling for load shifting, which maximizes solar self-utilization, and grid harmonization. Residential occupants purchase battery storage systems for a variety of reasons, such as PV self-consumption, backup power of critical loads during periods of scheduled or unscheduled grid outages or brown-outs, and avoiding electricity purchases during higher priced time-of-use periods. While residential battery storage remains an emerging market, interest is quickly growing both from consumers and regulators as battery costs decline and the need for grid resiliency becomes more pronounced.

The presenters will share their findings on the cost-effective combinations of battery storage measures, focusing on behind-the-meter (customer side) battery systems coupled with photovoltaic (PV) solar systems in both new construction and existing buildings.

Study authors will present their findings and answer participant questions on the measures and measure packages analyzed.
