We are looking for 50 households in Amsterdam New-West with solar panels who like to participate in a sustainable project. Collectively you will sell energy on specific moments while buying energy on the energy markets at other times. By using the storage capacity of 50 batteries, buying energy can be done at the most favourable time.
The 50 participants will be able to use more sustainable energy and respond to the fluctuating prices. When there is a surplus of wind or solar energy, the batteries will be charged. When more energy is charged than the households are using, the batteries will be discharged. This will be done when the energy prices are high. A Virtual Power Plant will be created.
To participate you need to or want to have solar panels, a smart meter, internet access and enough space for the battery (141x50x38 cm). During the project your energy provider is Greenspread.
Are you interested?
