Salt River Project Offers Residential Storage Incentives

Electric Light and Power:

Salt River Project has initiated a program to support the installation and use of battery energy storage systems for its residential customers.

The Battery Storage Incentive Program will provide up to $1,800 ($150 per DC-kWh) for customers who purchase and install qualifying lithium ion battery technologies. The program will be available for up to 4,500 SRP residential electric customers on a first-come, first-served basis during a 36-month period, beginning May 1, 2018.

“While we continue to add new, renewable energy resources, SRP is also conducting research to determine how increasing amounts of renewable energy will impact our electrical system,” said Scott Scharli, SRP’s manager of residential and commercial solar. “The battery storage program will give us an opportunity to collect data and study how battery storage impacts customer energy use and the SRP grid.”

“If we can help our customers reduce their demand from the grid, SRP may be able to incrementally decrease the amount of assets needed in the future to serve our customers’ electrical load,” Scharli said. “Among other potential areas, SRP intends to study how customers use battery systems and how these systems perform in our desert environment.”
