Why energy storage and beer?

Did you know that energy storage is the easiest way to reduce costs on your electric bill? If your brewing facility has HVAC systems, refrigeration needs, electric forklifts, or other machines with large sudden power draws, you can save thousands of dollars a year with our energy storage solution. Sophisticated cloud-based software monitors a facility’s energy use on a second-by-second basis. The result empowers facilities to better control their energy use and reduce their monthly electric costs. Now that’s refreshing.
