American PowerNet, which holds retail supplier licenses for its model of providing customer access to wholesale markets and pricing, has deployed a peer-to-peer (P2P) renewable energy trading platform at its headquarters in Wyomissing, Penn.
The platform will allow American PowerNet to trade 35kW of solar power -- generated from both its office roof and carport -- with neighbors connected in its office park, instead of just providing excess output to the grid
American PowerNet plans to commence the deployment this month under the existing deregulation rules with the cooperation of the local utility PPL, utilizing their existing distribution system and connecting the solar assets by utilizing platform data from pre-existing meters without the need for additional hardware, software or engineering fees
