California Added 11MW of Behind-the-Meter Batteries in Q3

Solar storage anyone?

Power companies need to MANAGE our rooftop solar energy instead of complaining how we produce too much for them to handle.

This is a good start!

California, which added 11 megawatts of commercial behind-the-meter battery systems in the third quarter of 2015. That’s more than half the state’s entire installed base to date, deployed in just three months, according to Thursday’s report from GTM Research and the Energy Storage Association.

That 11 megawatts also made up the lion's share of the U.S. total of 13.7 megawatts of behind-the-meter systems, compared to a mere 700 kilowatts deployed in the same quarter last year. These are startling growth rates, compared to the more stable doubling of utility-scale, or “front-of-the-meter,” storage deployments -- from 28.3 megawatts to 46.6 megawatts -- that took place over the same period.

Over the same time, the behind-the-meter segment has grown from 14 percent to 23 percent of the country’s total storage capacity, the report notes. All told, the U.S. deployed 60.3 megawatts of energy storage in the third quarter, up from 29.2 megawatts in the same quarter last year.
