Several school districts in California are not only saving money with battery storage systems, they are freeing up funds to use in other less supported areas. The Grossmont Union, Poway Unified, Mountain View Los Altos and Visalia Unified school districts are serving as beacons for others across the country. The key to savings these districts are experiencing lies in installing battery-based energy storage for their campuses, that mitigate the effect of demand charges that spike based on atmospheric changes. (Demand charges can account for half of the monthly electric bill.)
California's Self-Generated Incetive Program (SGIP) is a financial incentive program that encourages the installation of some new technologies, including solar PV and energy storage systems, that help to meet all of a portion of a facility's electricity needs.
Similar programs could exist or be in development in your area. You could profit big time from doing a little research and reaching out to school districts in your territory to offer your assistance in the process.
