Sunverge said Arizona Public Service Company has selected its energy storage system and distributed energy resources operations platform for its residential energy storage program.
The new program, Storage Rewards, provides a behind-the-meter storage battery to shift power load to off-peak periods and reduce their demand, while providing grid services to APS.
The Sunverge integrated platform will help customers get the most out of APS service plans that include peak-usage and demand charges.
Residential customers will receive a one-time participation award of $500 once they have been accepted to the program and the battery is activated.
The Sunverge platform automatically manages power flows behind the meter to optimize the use of grid power, battery storage, solar self-generation, and smart appliances in the home to reduce customer energy bills and improve efficiency.
“Our customers want more than reliable power; they want cutting edge technology and they want to know how to manage their energy use to best fit their lifestyle,” said Marc Romito, APS Director of Customer Technology.
