SolarCity introduces new set of services

SolarCity on Thursday introduced a new set of services for utility and grid operators. The new services include installation, financing, and consultation for utility-scale solar and energy storage resource development, beside advanced controls for demand response, distributed energy resources, and aggregated grid services.

This move signifies a broadening of SolarCity offerings and strategic orientation.

SolarCity launched its development of utility-scale solar power plants as an alternative to traditional fossil fuel generators. Utilities looking for additional generation capacity, or a solution to meet renewable portfolio standards and other environmental mandates, can leverage turn-key delivery of solar power via wholesale contracts and direct grid tied solar power systems.

SolarCity now also offers firm and dispatchable utility-scale storage solutions. Company’s capacity services offering combines solar and energy storage to intelligently take advantage of affordable solar power when it’s needed most

The company’s portfolios of aggregated distributed energy resources (DERs) offer grid planners and operators increased flexibility and resiliency as they work to modernize the grid. DER portfolios can provide grid services such as dynamic capacity and peak shaving, flexible ramping, frequency regulation, voltage and reactive power support, grid visibility and more, all managed through SolarCity’s software and control platform.
