An Energy Storage System (ESS) is a stationary battery that stores electrical energy and discharges it as needed for a building/facility. An ESS may be charged and discharged strategically to lower electricity demand during different times of day to reduce customer energy bills. It can also be used to provide backup power in case of a power outage.Learn More
