The White Pine Shared Savings Agreement (SSA) for battery energy storage systems (ESS) is a long-term services contract. White Pine deploys and operates an ESS at the customer’s place of business, then the savings produced by the ESS are split between the customer and White Pine.
White Pine covers 100% of costs associated with ESS project development and construction. We also assume all expenses and risks for maintaining and operating the ESS over time. As a performance-based services contract, the SSA provides savings to the customer without burdening their balance sheet.
White Pine is your long-term partner in smart energy management. Our team oversees the entire process from start to finish to ensure our ESS solutions meet your expectations. Delivering all SSA services in a complete package results in a superior customer experience.
Our SSAs incentivize White Pine to produce the maximum amount of savings, because we don’t get paid unless our customers save. We work around the clock to ensure the ESS is used to its full potential.
White Pine SSAs help our customers:
The ESS can be configured to automatically provide backup power to customer critical loads during a utility outage.
Unlike generators that are offline most of the year, the ESS can also generate revenue when there isn’t a grid outage.
The ESS helps businesses shave peak demand to avoid costly demand charges, which can make up as much as 50% of commercial utility bills. The example below shows an ESS with a daily discharge process that eliminates peak demand charges to reduce monthly demand charges by 60%.
The ESS discharges during the middle of the day to mitigate a load spike and reduce demand charges. During the evening on peak period, the ESS discharges again to reduce on peak energy and demand charges.
The White Pine Renewable team have originated, developed, and financed over 2,000 MW of solar and 500 MWh of ESS projects across the United States. Your project will be managed by seasoned executives and professionals who are principals of a company backed by institutional capital.
We take pride in providing outstanding customer service, smart project execution, best-in-class technology, and frictionless transactions. The process is simple, efficient, and cost-effective, resulting in increased savings to your bottom line.
Our relationships with ESS manufacturers, advanced technology providers, and flexible low-cost institutional capital enables us to deploy the latest, best-in-class technology. From start to finish we are focused on finding the right ESS solution for each individual customer.
