We live in exciting times, our energy mix is shifting towards higher amounts of renewable, clean energy sources like wind, solar and hydro. Unlike more traditional, carbon emitting energy sources like natural gas and coal, wind and solar are variable sources of energy. When a cloud drifts overhead or the wind stops blowing, these energy sources produce less energy than normal.
Services like OhmConnect provide the grid the flexibility needed to deploy more clean and renewable energy sources across the grid.
When you take part in a planned, collective effort like OhmConnect to adjust your energy usage at key times when the grid needs it most, the grid operators are able to reduce the amount of carbon emitting energy that gets produced.
