    SmartStorage by Sharp For many hotels across the country, peak demand charges are costly and can represent up to 50 percent of the building’s utility bill. Pairing solar plus energy storage allows both demand and energy savings. A solar PV installation can reduce the energy charge portion of your utility bill, but not the peak demand charge portion. That’s where Sharp’s SmartStorage® energy storage system comes in. Sharp’s SmartStorage® energy storage system is a unique energy storage solution designed to reduce expensive peak demand charges. It can help hotel engineers better manage energy usage while also saving on electricity bills. Sharp’s confidence in its product is reflected in its innovative 10-year asset management service agreement and 10-year demand reduction performance guarantee, an option available for all SmartStorage® system installations.  If guaranteed performance is not met, Sharp will compensate for the deficit in promised peak demand reductions.   Sharp SmartStorage® + solar is available with no money down financing options in specific locations.
