DC Coupled Energy Storage
Maximize production and revenue of utility scale solar
Harness the full power of your existing utility scale solar array with our advanced DC Coupled Energy Storage technologies that offer unprecedented control, efficiency, and flexibility for your power needs.
Why DC coupling for energy storage?
The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility scale PV installation gives system owners and operators the ability to capture additional revenue. This topology can be achieved with both AC and DC coupling – but utilizing a DC to DC converter comes with many additional benefits.
A DC Coupled Utility Scale Solar Plus Storage configuration can lead to higher efficiencies and overall cost savings from a variety of sources. With our DPS family of DC converters—available in 500kW building blocks—coupling your energy storage system alongside your utility scale solar on the DC side of the bus lowers the overall cost of installation while allowing for greater harvesting of solar energy. What’s more, this configuration has the ability to open up new revenue streams that are not possible with AC coupled or other storage configurations, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting—while also earning you valuable tax incentives.
With their scalability and modularity, our systems are designed to be compatible with any size application and are easy to expand or modify to meet your changing energy needs. With our DPS family of converters, any combination up to 6 units can be joined to create building blocks up to 3MW.
