Utility-scale “Duck Curve” power

The lowest cost answer to the “Duck Curve”:

    • Lower cost than PV+batteries
    • Competitive with natural gas
    • Potential for 50% to 80% solar penetration with cost savings
    • Solar power in the morning, afternoon and night
    • Highly dispatchable:
      • rapid ramp at any scale: < 20 seconds zero to full power at 10 MW, 100 MW, 1 GW or more
      • distributed deployment can reduce or eliminate investment in grid upgrades
    • Grid stability services:
      • frequency control and stabilization
      • rapid response: < 1 second
      • high inertia: > 6 seconds
