You get paid simply for having a SmartBox installed.
The National Grid pays businesses every year for having a SmartBox installed
ALWAYS IN CONTROL
SmartBox customers are always in control. Our system is customised for your power needs.
SmartBox is a revolutionary new device to help solve the UK’s energy problem.
At the moment National Grid needs more power than can be generated by power stations. Therefore, it has to buy extra fast response capacity from private companies.
As this extra power is only needed for a very short time, only a few minutes in most cases, National Grid require a very quick response time to re-balance the Grid. A SmartBox connected to high-consumption devices, such as refrigeration or air conditioning can meet this requirement.
National Grid are looking to procure this latent capacity to draw on and the SmartBox can deliver this to them in a quick and reliable way.
Get paid an extra guaranteed revenue stream without impacting your business operations. It’s as simple as that.
If you operate a Coldstore or business with any cooling including refrigeration and air conditioning a SmartBox will generate you an extra income simply by being installed in your business.
From time to time National Grid needs more power than can be generated by power stations and they have to buy this power from private companies. Instead of selling National Grid power we give them to option to turn things off for a few minutes. A Coldstore or air conditioner is the perfect device for this as it is only turned off for a few minutes so the temperature will not rise and if it does the power is automatically restored.
Since National Grid pays for power “availability” not what is generated or in our case turned off. You get a guaranteed payment even if your device is never switched off.
