BSG in partnership with energy solution providers & supporting funders generally offers three (3) types of solutions for clients but note each transaction is designed deal-by-deal.

  1. Cost security - Grid-tied system: Utility connection + solar

    • The main driver of funding on a cost security basis is the arbitrage opportunity that the implementation of this technology presents.

    • The applicable grid tariff for the site is a key determinant of the feasibility of a project. The higher the tariff, the greater the arbitrage opportunity and the stronger the feasibility.

    • Unless there is a suitable REFIT contract with the utility for a specific site, we don’t recommend systems designed in excess of 60% of your annual load.

  2. Supply security - Off-grid system: Solar + battery + storage

    • Off-grid systems are appealing because the site is 100% self-sustaining with no reliance on the utility.

    • Hybrid systems combine both the concept of off-grid and grid-tied to reduce the peak energy consumption and the impact of interrupted energy supply.

    • Storage solutions generally compete with existing baseload capacity.

    • Feasibility usually fails when trying to justify an off-grid/load shifting solution in the absence of exorbitant downtime costs as battery storage is generally not as economically viable to compete with current utility charges.

  3. Hybrid security - Off-grid system: Solar + battery + storage

Bluestone Services offers two types of solutions;

  • the traditional EPC/CAPEX where the Client/landlord own the assets (Solar PV and supporting equipment) or 

  • the PPA option where TFS finances the solution and your company pays a monthly kW per hr usage tariff that is generally lower than your municipality electricity tariff, with the added bonus of improved energy security of regular electricity supply with limited or no impact during daylight load shedding hrs. If after hrs (night time) energy is required during load shedding then the TFS can offer batteries from their sister company BlueNova
