TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR ENERGY WITH AN INTELLIGENT SOLAR BATTERY SYSTEM
You don’t leave the success of your business to chance. Now you can take charge of your company’s energy profile, too. XOLTA’s intelligent solar batteries demonstrate true CSR. They also position you as a decisive brand that takes the climate crisis seriously.
Although solar batteries are fantastic, they’re old news. Today’s (and tomorrow’s) solar cell installations call for a more intelligent solution.
Why? Because both the energy market and tariffs keep changing.
As the gravity of the planet’s situation becomes clear for more and more people, those in positions of power are also likely to enforce even stricter energy-related measures. XOLTA’s intelligent energy storage solution can prepare you. And help you prosper.
Electric alternatives are increasingly replacing products and processes that run on fossil fuels. While great, this is making it more challenging for the power grid to stay in balance. Tariffs on transportation of electricity and demand charges during peak-need hours are common ways to address the challenge.
Tariffs vary throughout the day. They discourage consumption when demand for electricity is high. And they encourage use when demand is low. With an intelligent XOLTA solar battery system, you can minimize the impact of tariffs and demand charges through peak shaving.
Peak shaving lets you avoid costly spikes in consumption. If your need for energy is high when the cost of energy is high, your XOLTA system draws on your stored battery energy instead. Automatically. No more unpleasant surprises on your energy bill. Meanwhile, your XOLTA app keeps you informed about all the pleasant surprises.
With the XOLTA web app, your finger is on the pulse of your energy storage system. Get the overview. Explore the economics. See detailed historical data. Monitor your installations. And more!
By incorporating data on energy prices and forecasted weather, the XOLTA algorithm optimizes battery charge/discharge times, heating and cooling of buildings, and charging of electric vehicles.
A XOLTA battery automatically shifts the use of your solar cell energy so that you use it when it benefits you most.
Say you’ve saved lots of extra energy in your battery from the sunny mid-day hours. Your intelligent XOLTA system decides when it’s worthwhile to use it, taking into account the weather forecast, your energy needs and the price of electricity. That way, you limit your purchase of energy solely to when it makes financial sense.
Even if your power from the grid comes and goes, you won’t be left in the dark with XOLTA. Your battery can simply take over and deliver backup power to critical functions as needed. When there’s a power interruption, the battery registers the event and kicks in. And once the grid is back up and stable again, your intelligent XOLTA battery goes back on standby.
The challenge of balancing the grid presents opportunities as well. You can provide frequency support by offering your battery as a balancing unit for the grid in markets that allow it. Experts call it a game-changer for battery asset owners, since it can result in a significant extra source of income and speed up asset payback time.
When you enable the grid to contain a greater share of renewable energy, your revenue stacking benefits both your business and the community. What a great story to tell in your annual report!
Is there a chance you’ll want to expand your solar installation down the line? With XOLTA, you can easily increase your storage capacity. It’s quick, convenient and cost-effective.
Chances are, energy storage prices also will be lower in the future, so it makes sense not to over-invest now. XOLTA’s small, easily scalable solution fits into most spaces and budgets.
What’s more, if you’re using multiple XOLTA solar battery racks connected together, you have the peace of mind of redundancy. Each battery functions as an independent module. That way, even if one battery shuts down, the others keep delivering reliable performance.
A 2020 Forbes article cites carbon neutrality as one of the 5 key CSR trends business leaders should pay attention to. “Simply reducing the environmental impact of corporate operations is not enough; now, stakeholders are demanding that companies eliminate them all together,” it states.
Buying a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) or carbon offsets is a step in the right direction. And being a direct producer of solar energy is a leap. But using that renewable energy to measurably improve your business and your community? That just might make shareholders’ hearts soar.
All XOLTA indoor and outdoor products meet CE safety standards. They’re used in locations throughout the world – wherever people want to get more out of their solar cells.
You get even more peace of mind with 24/7/365 system performance monitoring. Quality. It’s built into every XOLTA solution.

Ballen harbor, on the Danish island of Samsø, stores excess solar energy in XOLTA 237 kWh solar batteries and uses it for wastewater pumps, saunas, underfloor heating and more. This contributes to Samsø’s commitment to a sustainable, renewable future.
