Solar Grid Storage Working with Most Respected U.S. Solar Developers to Usher in Grid of the Future

DEC. 9, 2013  -- Solar Grid Storage, the leading pioneer in solar storage deployment, has contracted with several of nation’s most respected solar project developers to deploy solar systems that incorporate cost-effective energy storage.  Solar Grid Storage projects help stabilize the grid and deliver power even during utility outages.  The company’s customers include Advanced Solar Products, groSolar, Standard Solar, Solaire Generation, Solis Partners, Argand Energy, among others – companies responsible for deploying thousands of megawatts of commercial solar installations in the U.S. 

“With cumulative U.S. solar deployment at a record high, Solar Grid Storage microgrids are empowering the solar industry to address clean energy intermittency and provide backup emergency energy storage,” said Tom Leyden, CEO of Solar Grid Storage.  “Solar Grid Storage enables developers and installers to offer a simple and low-cost way to integrate storage into solar projects, delivering grid stability and backup power – even during outages.  We are very proud to be working with some of the most highly respected project developers in the nation to integrate storage into their projects.  Pairing solar with storage will help accelerate solar’s contribution to the energy mix and strengthen grid resiliency.”

“Incorporating Solar Grid Storage’s technology into our solar projects enables us to guarantee our customers clean solar generation while also providing an uninterrupted emergency power supply,” said Lyle Rawlings, CEO of Advanced Solar Products.  “Working with Solar Grid Storage, we’re developing and delivering turnkey solar plus storage projects that help grid operators balance power on the grid, further drive down the cost of solar, and accelerate solar and clean power adoption nationwide.  Additionally, our investors have been earning meaningful investment returns while our host customers realize new benefits of solar.”

Solar Grid Storage CEO Tom Leyden will be presenting at the Solar Market Insight conference in San Diego on December 10th.
