For many, “sustainability” evokes images of solar panels, windmills, and electric vehicles. When we at Green Charge use the word, we are indeed talking about reducing carbon emissions by using energy storage to bank renewable energy, thus reducing reliance on power from oil and coal. We also contribute to sustainability by giving utilities the means to leverage our distributed customer-sited energy storage so they can more efficiently balance grid demand.

As we have seen with the progress to date, further advances will require continuing coordination within utilities, their regulators and customers to ensure a sustainable path forward.
