Fermata Energy V2X pilot


In May of 2021, startup Electric Frog provided a Nissan LEAF to the Burrillville Wastewater Treatment Facility in Rhode Island. Fermata Energy installed its FE-15 bidirectional charger and proprietary V2X software to manage the charging of the EV and deliver power on call to the building. National Grid’s ConnectedSolutions program pays participants $300/kW for up to 60 peak energy events between June and September. Fermata Energy helped offset 27 peak energy events over the summer in Burrillville, and Electric Frog received a $4,200 check from the utility. Fermata’s proprietary demand charge management (DCM) software also lowered the building’s energy cost, resulting in savings for the Burrillville facility. “The electric vehicle and charger delivered power for 57 peak hours this summer when demand was at its highest,” said John Isberg, VP of Customer Sales and Solutions at National Grid. “These results help to give us confidence that electric vehicles can be a reliable partner in providing a clean and resilient electricity grid for the future.”
