Title: Identifying Critical Factors in the Cost-Effectiveness of Solar and Battery Storage in Commercial Buildings

Abstract

This analysis elucidates the emerging market for distributed solar paired with battery energy storage in commercial buildings across the United States. It provides insight into the near-term and future solar and solar-plus-storage market opportunities as well as the variables that impact the expected savings from installing behind-the-meter systems.
