Building a Greater Energy Grid for the Greater Good

The future of energy is changing, and we're changing with it. Swell Energy and Con Edison are developing a Virtual Power Plant fueled by hundreds of solar-charged home batteries.

Now, the power that you generate on your own rooftop can help make the energy grid more resilient for you and your neighbors. The Virtual Power Plant will provide 500 kW of clean energy to Con Edison customers during peak periods, lightening the load on the energy grid on summer’s hottest days.

This project is the first of its kind in New York City, and it's just the beginning of a new way to think about how you get and use energy.

Who Is Eligible?

Homeowners in the Queens neighborhoods of Forest Park, Glendale, Hunters Point, Long Island City, Maspeth, Middle Village, Ridgewood, Sunnyside, and parts of Elmhurst, Forest Hills, Rego Park, and Woodside who have, or are interested in getting a home battery system paired with or without solar panels.

Swell Energy’s NYC Victories for Virtual Power Plants is an innovative, clean-power program available to Con Edison customers in select neighborhoods in Queens.

The Benefits of a Neighborhood Virtual Power Plant

Efficient Energy Use
Efficient Energy Use

Your home battery stores solar energy for use during peak times when prices are highest, and automatically switches back to the grid when prices are lower.

Energy in an Emergency

The renewable energy you create and store can enhance the grid on a local level. By replacing fossil fuels with renewables, you’ll help improve the air quality where you live and ensure that green energy can be distributed whenever and wherever it’s needed.

How does a home battery work?

A home battery acts like a barrier between your home and the energy grid. It plugs right into your current electrical system to optimize daily energy use and store the clean energy generated by your solar panels, so you can use it even when the sun isn't shining.
