Why Energy Storage and Backup are Important

Combining your renewables with energy storage and management increases your impact and boosts your return on investment.

We love the energy we get from the sun or wind, which are never going to run out. But when the sun goes down and the wind doesn’t blow, what do we do then? That's where Torus comes in. We make sure that you never run out of power and that you have access to renewable energy even at night. Let's talk about why saving energy and having backup power is so important.

When the sun is shining brightly or the wind is blowing, we can store the extra energy. Later, when it's nighttime or cloudy or calm, we can use this stored energy. 

Have you ever had a power outage at home? Maybe during a storm or a heavy snowfall? It's not fun when the lights go out, right? That's why we also need backup energy. It's like having extra batteries for your flashlight. Even if the power goes out, the backup energy can step in and keep the lights on.

Saving and storing energy can also help us save money. Energy prices fluctuate during different times of day, when it’s more expensive or cheaper for the power company. With Torus, we can store energy when there's a lot of it and it's cheap, and use it when there's less and it's more expensive from the grid. It's like buying your favorite things when they’re on sale and saving them for later!

At Torus, we're working to make sure that we can always have enough renewable energy, even when the sun isn't shining or the wind isn't blowing. We're building systems that can save your energy and provide backup when you need it.

We believe that with the right tools, we can make sure that everyone always has the power they need, while also taking care of our planet. That's why saving extra energy and having a backup is so important. It helps us keep the lights on, take care of our Earth, and maybe even save some money too!
