Energy storage system, or into a residential solar products - the next growth
Energy storage battery -
Today, residential solar installer quietly began to enlarge its range of products, including energy storage products, this could be the much-needed income growth.
Tesla was the most famous of the energy storage equipment manufacturers, while one, SunPower, Vivint Solar and other companies are also entering the storage market, see some signs of success at the beginning of 2018.
For solar installer, the deployment of energy storage is that the benefits of the product, it can take advantage of the existing of the cost of marketing and sales to increase income.
States that could help make solar power more attractive to customers.
The next market growth in the solar industry product one company provides about residential solar manufacturers sell energy storage systems in the United States the latest information, and early data is impressive.
The company in the first quarter of 2018 in the conference call, one chief executive Lynn Jurich, said & other;
We launched three months ago in Massachusetts Brightbox energy storage system, and our direct sales of solar products customers in nearly 10% of customers have adopted Brightbox energy storage system.
She added: & other;
In California, our customers are more than 20% of select add Brightbox energy storage system, in some markets in southern California, this proportion is now higher than 50%.
One company did not disclose each Brightbox energy storage system of revenue or profit margins, but according to the data of EnergySage company, each storage system at least $5000 of incremental revenue, and sometimes more than $10000 of additional income.
As one company in the past year to 45000 customers set up a solar power generation system, thus can bring a year 2.
2. 5 billion dollars in additional income.
The solar industry is unlikely to achieve 100% energy storage products of permeability, but even the 10% to 50% of the energy storage using products in the market will have a significant impact to the enterprise income.
One company is not the only energy storage company tesla was a solar energy storage industry leader, but its solar business is shrinking, and energy storage projects have been transferred to the utility scale market.
If people want to invest in residential energy storage vendor's stock, tesla is not a right choice.
SunPower, said commercial solar energy products, including energy storage products, now accounts for about 30%, and is expected to launch later this year the housing energy storage products will use the same strategy.
The company hopes to become a business leader in the field of energy storage, and a place in the residential energy storage areas, though it is only in the early stages of the product.
In the loss of Mercedes Benz company after the battery manufacturers partners, Vivint Solar companies in the process of energy storage to deploy behind one and SunPower, Mercedes Benz in earlier this year out of the house energy storage market.
The company now offers one company LG Chem battery, but in most of the market has not sales, but in terms of energy storage controller, mercedes-benz also does not have the similar experience.
The Vivint company in residential energy storage market share has increased, but now one company and SunPower is the industry leader.
Energy storage system benefit the energy storage system there are many ways to create value for customers, and proved its value for a long time in more than 5000 dollars.
The simplest method is as backup power supply, if deployed in bad weather or bad power grid can come in handy.
Through the low price and high price range for arbitrage, people have reason to adopt more and more energy storage systems.
States have different charging standard, depending on the time that day, and residential users can in the evening when using the solar power during the day.
The grid service is another can create value field for a long time.
If the local utility companies have the ability to where needed storage and distribution of electricity, it reduces the overall cost of running power grid and residential users can charge for the use of the energy storage system.
Then known as virtual power plants, which is ultimately solar operators hope to use the scale from the storage to the grid and the customer provides the greatest value.
Energy storage system in the aspect of application is still in its early stages, but each time the sales can increase the income of $5000 or more, get one, Tesla, Vivint Solar, and energy storage company welcome such as SunPower and may become an important growth point in 2018.
