    Charged Up: A Giant Battery will Help Brandeis Lower Electricity Costs, Aid in the Progress of Greener Power

    Brandeis University is launching a new energy storage project that is projected to save the campus upwards of $50,000 annually in electricity costs. The Massachusetts university is partnering with AMS and FirstLight Power to install and operate a 780-kWh battery-based energy storage system that will connect with the school’s electrical power system. By charging overnight when the price of electricity is at its lowest, the battery will be able to send electricity into Brandeis’ system during the day when prices peak – enabling the university to buy less electricity at the most expensive times.
