Green Charge Networks’ energy storage product, GreenStation, empowers industrial and commercial customers to control rising demand charges and save in electric bills. The product is easy to install, maintenance-free, and economical.

The root technology is a stochastic controller with sophisticated software that flattens the power load curve during peak consumption periods, with substantial savings for the end-customer and reduced power load for the electric utility.

Founded in 2009, Green Charge Networks is a leader in intelligent customer-sited energy storage.  The company gives commercial and industrial customers control of rising demand rates on their monthly electric bills.

Green Charge Networks’ product complements solar PV, electric vehicle charging, and energy efficiency. The GreenStation was developed in partnership with leading utilities around the country, the U.S. Department of Energy, and Fortune 500 customers.
