Sun-Sink for Electricity Distributors


The option for an electricity distributor to deploy local storage devices that they can control, offers significant alternatives at a vastly cheaper cost, than continual expansion and reinforcing of existing poles and wires. The effect on peak demand brought on by a huge uptake of air-conditioners can now be countered at half the cost of traditional methods. The added benefit is the reduction in grid instability brought about by solar PV systems, as peak loads can be met by locally produced and stored electrical energy. The injection of this time shifted electricity can occur when the grid is providing a significant portion of the demand and therefore can exert the required grid model for these additional supplies to follow when discharging. The potential for incumbent distributors to derive similar profit outcomes whilst reducing the size of their respective networks rather than relying on growth is in plain sight, particularly as the customer is likely to happily contribute upfront.
