The Glasgow Electric Plant Board (EPB) in Kentucky is installing Sunverge‘s energy storage devices for use during times of peak demand.

The municipally-owned utility, which serves a town of 14,000, will install the 6 kW / 11.6 kWh Sunverge system in 165 homes, providing utility-grade storage at individual homes along with cloud software to manage the storage. The devices will capture power from the electric grid at night or when demand and cost are lower. When demand peaks and costs are higher, the utility will order the batteries to release that power and distribute it, reducing the need to supply additional power from traditional generating plants.
