Save on fuel and diesel genset maintenance costs in off-grid microgrid
The integration of battery energy storages to microgrid helps to achieve the full potential of photovoltaic (PV) systems and ensures microgrid power quality while saving diesel fuel and maintenance costs. The production of an off-grid microgrid typically consist of renewable energy generation and internal combustion engine powered generators, such as diesel gensets. In rural microgrids the fuel transportation costs, storage and guarding play significant role in the total fuel price. When the Merus™ ESS, a sophisticated battery energy storage system, is installed in the microgrid, substantial savings can be obtained from reduced need of fuel and maintenance cost of the gensets.
