Choosing the Right Energy Solution
A look at the benefits of combining energy technologies


All buildings, from residential homes to commercial manufacturing facilities, depend on electricity. Whether it’s food preparation, temperature control or adequate lighting, energy is an essential part of completing day to day activities.

More and more facilities are choosing clean energy to meet sustainability goals and reap potential long-term energy savings. Wind and solar power is generated without emitting air pollutants and continues to decline in price. However, wind and solar power generators are subject to changing environmental conditions that can affect the amount of power that is produced. The reliability of the electric power supply can be affected by the variability in the power output of renewable technologies.

Combining renewable energy technologies with natural gas and standard electricity is one way to achieve reliability and cost-savings while helping to protect the environment. You can utilize renewable energy such as wind or solar power while continuing to receive electricity and natural gas from your competitive energy supplier or local utility as backup power. This ensures you always have power when you need it, and still utilize renewable energy to provide the clean emissions-free power needed to run operations while helping to meet your sustainability goals.

Another option for handling the variability of renewable energy is to use batteries for energy storage. Batteries can act as a gap-filler by supplementing your power needs when renewable resources are not available, as well as acting as storage during peak production. WGL Energy (WGL Energy Services and Systems) can partner with you to find the optimal energy solution for your home or business.
