Valentine’s Day conjures up some of history’s best duos: Romeo and Juliet; Hans Solo and Chewbacca; peanut butter and jelly. At JLL, we’re thinking of another remarkable pair – one that gives both sustainability and financial experts reason to celebrate: solar and storage.
While solar power generation isn’t new, it has reached a crucial tipping point. Sourcing energy from the sun is not only commercially viable, it can be a sound economic opportunity for companies willing to invest in sustainable energy infrastructure.
But the reality is that the sun doesn’t shine 24 hours a day. Solar power can only create energy (and offset non-solar energy) during daylight hours. When the sun sets, it’s game over. With a finite amount of daylight to collect solar Photovoltaic (PV) energy, is there a way to capture and extend power-producing sunlight?
There is, according to Kyle Goehring, National Alternative Energy Services Manager at JLL. The answer is solar power plus battery storage. … Read More
