Tesla and EnergyHub will support the Northeast's largest battery virtual power plant. The collaboration will make it easier to connect to utility programs for electric customers in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
Tesla and EnergyHub have partnered to enable enrollment in the ConnectedSolutions program through the Tesla app, according to a press release. A new in-app interface makes it easier to join utility programs for consumers in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island who enroll in ConnectedSolutions. This is EnergyHub's largest bring-your-own-battery demand response program. It links batteries to create a virtual power plant (VPP) that can be used to limit peak electricity demand and provide value-added grid services.
Tesla Powerwall owners can take part in ConnectedSolutions. They can earn on every kilowatt of benefit they feed into the grid, which can be up to $1,500 a year depending on the size of the battery and the state they live in. Using the new interface in the application, customers can easily register in the program, see all events, and get network performance data.
“This frictionless approach to enrollment is key to building battery storage resources at scale and bringing the benefits of VPPs to the grid,” said Matt Johnson, VP Business Development at EnergyHub. “Many small actions add up to an impactful, positive result. It's essential that customers can easily see how they are helping the grid and getting rewarded for it, and the partnership with Tesla enables this level of visibility.”
