Storage Testing In Solar-Powered Smart Homes

Los Alamos County Department of Public Utilities (DPU) is in collaboration with Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology and Development Organization (NEDO) and Japanese companies Kyocera, Sharp, NEC and Toshiba, to test smart home and smart grid systems and to find out how smart homes can use and store solar energy from their own rooftops and from a nearby solar power plant.

A 2-megawatt solar power plant will energize about 2,000 residential sites in the high-desert community of Los Alamos. The photovoltaic system, with its 8.3- Mw hour battery storage system, will display the ability to stabilize solar power output by decreasing peak system demand as it draws electricity from the battery system during peak usage times.
