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
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.
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
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.
