The system uses Tesla battery technology to integrate solar and wind in order to optimize renewable generation, reduce demand on the electric grid and lower energy costs. It is expected to reduce demand on the electric grid by over 2.5 million kilowatt hours each year, which is equivalent to powering 212 homes for a year.
