Small business sees $4,000 in annual energy savings thanks to GridZero system

Intersolar North America was packed with new product innovations and intriguing solar install case studies. This tale from Brandon Provalenko, director of product and market strategy with OutBack Power, has both. OutBack has made a lot of news recently, from its battery-based inverters earning HECO approval, to its new storage solution with Sonnenbatterie, to the debut of its exciting FLEXpower Radian inverter. In the video above, Provalenko details a case study from Ontario, Canada, (where there isn’t a ton of sunlight) where a small business has able to self-consume energy and only use the grid when needed. The amount of energy savings they were able to achieve is fairly impressive. Cool story.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We discuss everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
