Every 2500 R home comes with its own Sunverge Solar Integration System (SIS). Integrated with solar PV and demand response Programmable Communicating Thermostats, SIS units will provide energy services to each home with additional energy reserves aggregated and delivered to SMUD as Demand Response capacity.

This project will provide a benchmark for how energy storage, solar, and smart devices can be controlled and aggregated in order to provide multiple grid management benefits. In addition, it will demonstrate how these systems can be simultaneously used on the customer side of the meter to manage demand, lower electricity costs, and provide backup power in the case of a grid outage.

In total, there are 34 residential energy storage systems in the housing development rated at 4.5 kW/ 11.64 kWh each.
