We’re all aware that the modern world operates on electricity. While investor-owned public utility companies are the greatest supplier, sustainable energy, whether it be solar, wind or hydro is becoming a larger fraction of the supply. And because of that, energy storage batteries are a growing trend among residential and business customers as they look to shave their ever-increasing utility bills.
At the same time, sustainability standards in California have mandated that utilities install solar and battery packages. But who pays for that new infrastructure, including massive solar farms and transmission lines? It’s not the investors. It’s the ratepayers. You and I.
We expect that from a monopolistic, publicly-traded utility whose chief interest is looking after its bottom line profitability. But here’s the rub. Most of the batteries they acquire aren’t up to the job. Like a 5-year battery for a massive, multimillion dollar facility. No way that’s going to work in the long term. It will need to be replaced every five years or so. In some cases, their batteries might last twice as long. However, that’s only 10 years we’re talking about. Either way it results in a costly proposition for ratepayers when it comes to replacing them.
But instead of exploring the marketplace to find better performing batteries that would cut expenses associated with fallibility, and manufacturers who will stand behind their product, the utilities simply rely on their ability to pass those costs on to the consumer.
At iDemand Energy Storage (iDES3), we design and engineer our battery systems in such a way that performance issues don’t occur. We take pride in our product. Equally important, we don’t take our customers for granted.
If you have solar production on your roof or grounds, wouldn’t you prefer a 10,000-cycle battery system that has 27.5 years of life with a 25-year warranty rather than a system that comes with inestimable labor and repair costs? Sure you would. It’s a no-brainer.
If you own a home – even a tiny home – business, or farm, our systems can give you the Uninterrupted Energy Supply you need, not just a backup supply. Our battery units are a proven 24/7 source of power that can eliminate your demand charges altogether.
No net metering. No utility-company approval needed.
Our staff and certified contractor-assisted field technicians are here to help.
iDemand Energy Storage is the No. 1 manufacturer contractor-assisted battery supplier in the world.
Ask any other battery supplier what’s in their storage system.
