HOW IT WORKS

  • When the grid is stressed, Luma asks us to sell them energy.
  • Fortress Power dispatches energy from batteries in the program
  • Energy from battery is used by the home’s load
  • In some cases, energy can be exported to the grid and receives Net Metering credits for this export.
  • Fortress verifies the battery discharge and sends you a check ever 3 months.
  • Luma pays Fortress for helping stabilize the Puerto Rican grid.
