Solar energy is increasingly becoming a viable choice for power generation in residential and commercial applications and utility projects. However, there is no denying that solar has one major limitation that restricts its use at scale; it is available for power generation only when the sun is shining.

Electric utilities also find it challenging to supply power consistently, especially at night, because solar panels release all the energy as soon as it is produced.

“Electric utilities require the right size battery to store electricity to meet the needs and demands of its consumers and supply uninterrupted power across communities,” says Dedrick Jackson, owner of BFA Energy.

Helping electric utility companies with cost-efficient and cleaner solar energy is BFA Energy, a trusted national solar developer. A leader in the space, the firm operates to develop utility-scale solar projects, from concept to completion, and bring them to the market.

BFA Energy deploys a team of subject matter experts to help utilities struggling to store solar electricity and supply it economically. The firm constructs hybrid PV systems, taking into consideration the economic solar energy and storage requirements of clients. To understand client’s power supply concerns, they interconnect with its electrical grid and monitor the trends of supply curtailments from utilities or drops in energy demand from consumers at specific times of the year. Team BFA Energy uses the insights to model the needs and demands and determine the type of battery storage utilities require.

While assisting clients in storing and supplying power consistently, BFA also looks for options to upgrade clients’ existing grid, ensuring power is supplied as economically as possible. This helps utilities respond to the rising demand from end-consumers for affordable, clean energy.

What sets BFA Energy apart is its proactive approach to finding projects. The firm creates a list of utilities to work with and reaches out to them, contacting them directly through LinkedIn, phone calls, or email to ask discovery questions about their energy demands and wholesale energy rates.

“We stay professional, clear, concise and direct with clients, providing a feasible time-frame to complete the project and highlighting how we can bring the best value. This helps us gain the confidence of clients and meet their expectations,” says Jackson.

BFA Energy’s other prominent offerings include discovering and acquiring the most suitable land near transmission lines. Engineering work, funding procurement, and response to requests for proposals are included services. While installing solar systems, they follow standard operating procedures and obtain permits for operating the system.

BFA Energy also offers a scope of passive income for landowners and utilities. Instead of leaving the land idle, they can earn substantial money by selling or leasing it for solar projects.

As the solar industry evolves, BFA Energy’s customer-centric operations and broad service portfolio play a crucial part in prioritizing customers’ unique demands. They are capable of researching the best options to meet client’s needs and assist them in establishing a cleaner and greener energy future.
