Is Orison storage considered a grid tied device?

  June 4, 2020   |   Category: Electrical Safety

No, Orison storage is not considered to be a conventional grid tied system. We have specifically designed the system to never export power back onto the grid. In this respect, it is like any other plug-and-play appliance or UPS. Before a conventional grid tied power device that can export energy to the grid (e.g. conventional solar inverters) are installed, one is (in most markets) required to notify the power company and receive an interconnect agreement to use the grid as storage. However, Orison storage does not fall into this category as we never export energy hence, we are treated as an appliance.  This does not prevent the Orison system from performing all the beneficial operations in terms of demand shifting and backup.
