Rochester, N.Y., June 13, 2011 — Arista Power, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of wind turbines and renewable energy power storage and management systems and a supplier of solar energy systems, won an order from Sentry Group for a Power on Demand renewable energy storage and management system.
Headquartered in Rochester, New York, Sentry Group is a manufacturer of fire-resistant safes, chests, files, security storage containers and gun safes.
Power on Demand is designed to reduce electricity demand charges, which can account for 30 percent to 70 percent of a commercial electric bill.
The order represents Arista Power's third sale of a Power on Demand system, a proprietary, patent-pending system that is designed to utilize energy generated by wind turbines, solar PV or the grid itself together with a custom-designed battery storage system and a proprietary real-time "smart monitoring" technology.
The monitoring system is designed to smooth power demand on the grid by maintaining grid demand within optimal parameters, thereby reducing peak demand charges, prolonging battery life and lowering commercial electricity costs.
