What is grid service mode?

Your business can provide grid services, which protect and stabilize the grid during periods of disruption. From this, you can earn an income for offering your solar battery storage to the National Grid.

In grid service mode, you can provide an income to your business by offering the battery to stabilize the National Grid during times of distress.

This process is often accessed through an aggregator, which controls and manages the battery storage system on your behalf to extract revenues by providing grid services to the National Grid through contracts the aggregator secures.

Grid services can offer a number of revenue streams as outlined briefly below:
