Reduce Your Electricity Bill and Carbon Footprint with Battery Storage

Convergent has saved businesses up to 40% off their electricity bills and is the largest owner and operator of battery storage in Canada.

Who We Help

We use energy storage to help large commercial and industrial facilities reduce their electricity spend $1M or more – and improve their carbon footprint – at no cost.

Energy Storage in Ontario: A No-Brainer

Large commercial and industrial power consumers in Ontario pay 65% more for electricity than in the rest of Canada.

This is due to the structure of the Global Adjustment charge.


Battery Storage Savings

$450,000/MW X 5MW = $2,250,000 PER YEAR

Convergent finances, owns, and operates battery energy storage systems to reduce Global Adjustment charges by “peak shaving,” or dispatching the battery when electricity is most expensive.

Using electricity from the battery—rather than the grid—during those peaks saves $450,000/MW at current pricing. If a facility’s load is 5MW, a Convergent battery system can save $2,250,000 annually, which is shared between Convergent and our customers.

Spotlight: Our Joint Venture with Shell New Energies

Shell New Energies selected Convergent to develop battery storage systems at two of their facilities, located in Sarnia, Ontario and Brockville, Ontario. The systems reduce the consumption of energy for the facilities by up to one third of typical demand while increasing the reliability and long-term sustainability of the grid. 

This 10 MW / 20 MWh battery energy storage project is the biggest behind-the-meter battery energy storage system in North America (as of 2019).
