Businesses in Ontario face some of the highest electricity costs in North America, thanks largely to the Global Adjustment (GA) charge, which energy providers pass onto customers’ electricity bills to cover their costs of generating capacity and conservation programs. In 2018, Ontario customers are projected to pay nearly $12.8 billion in GA charges alone.

This case study breaks down how Algoma Orchards, a family-owned commercial orchard in the Durham region of Ontario, leverages energy storage and DER optimization software to transition its facility’s load on and off the grid automatically and seamlessly—reducing energy spend without disrupting site-level productivity at the facility.

Explore this case study to understand how businesses are using on-site energy storage to manage electricity spend.
