In addition to getting paid by Fortress, we manage your battery to maximize the value of the Net Metering credits, lowering your energy bill even further.

HOW IT WORKS

  • When the grid is stressed, the utilities and grid operator increase the value of supporting the grid.
  • Fortress Power monitors these prices and dispatches your battery when the prices are highest.
  • Energy from the battery is used by the home’s load.
  • At certain times, the price is high enough to export additional energy to the grid. At these times, you are getting paid to help the grid and generating Net Metering credits, a win for you and the grid.
  • Fortress Power verifies the battery discharge and pays you annually for your participation.
  • The utilities and grid operator pay Fortress for helping stabilize the Californian grid.
