Today there have never been more choices in electricity service. Previously there was one supplier – one source – one rate. Now there are dozens of companies offering multiple rate and term options. You can also generate, store and distribute your own electricity to take control of your supply, price, reliability and security.
Distributed Energy Development
American Enerpower helps clients gain control of their energy destiny. Whether simply offering electricity and natural gas rates and term options or going deeper into distributed energy resource development by installing electricity generation, storage, arbitrage and distribution, American Enerpower can plan and execute your electricity service.
American Enerpower develops, finances and manages all aspects of energy management and distributed energy development to significantly and sustainably lower electricity costs for the commercial and industrial sector, cities, schools, and municipal utilities.
Electricity and natural gas rates, terms and retailer options are available through our Energy Management program. Assistance is provided on when to execute a contract, which provider has high credit worthiness and service, and how long to execute a contract that achieves real savings. Minimizing price risk is also a major goal of the Energy Management program. Details
Distributed Energy Development
Distributed Energy Development results in electricity generation and storage performed by a variety of grid-connected or microgrid-connected system resources, including batteries and generators. Details
Generation generally involves burning fossil fuels to produce electricity. Solar and wind generation is growing to replace fossil fuel generation. Power stations convert the heat energy of combustion into mechanical energy, which then operates an electrical generator. Solar and wind directly drive generators to create electricity. Details
A microgrid is a self-sufficient energy system that serves a discrete geographic footprint, such as a business complex, college campus, hospital center, or neighborhood. Within microgrids are one or more kinds of distributed energy resources are established to produce power, e.g. solar panels, wind turbines, generators and batteries. Details
Energy Storage – Batteries
Large industrial size batteries are used to store energy produced at one time for use at a later time to reduce imbalances between energy demand and energy production. A battery can store energy produced by the grid, solar panels, wind turbines, generators and others. Details
Electric power lines allow bulk transmission of electricity from a generating site, such as a power plant, to an electricity substation. Natural gas pipelines allow transmission of natural gas from a production field to a generating site. Details
By working with clients, retailers and the state, we establish programs to reduce client electricity usage during critical system wide demand periods and compensate clients for participating. Details
Arbitrage and Ancillaries
Arbitrage of excess electricity results in selling power back to the grid or to others. Selecting the right time to sell is critical to profitability.
Ancillaries are fees earned by providing primary or standby backup power to the grid. Providing this service results in profits to the provider and a more resilient electricity grid. Details
Carbon neutrality is a state of net-zero carbon dioxide emissions. This can be achieved by balancing emissions of carbon dioxide with its removal or by eliminating emissions. Organizations are increasingly being mandated to achieve net-zero goals and we are here to help you achieve those. Details
