California’s Changing Time-of-Use Rates: Calculating the Impact of Energy Storage and Solar PV

Amid a steady rise in renewable power, California’s demand curve has undergone a radical transformation—a phenomenon which is commonly referred to as the “duck curve.” In response, utilities in the state are implementing new time-of-use (TOU) rate schedules, which will have a substantial impact on energy costs for California businesses.
Last year, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) shifted its on-peak hours to the late-afternoon/early evening, when demand tends to spike on the grid. Facing the same challenges, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and Southern California Edison (SCE) are in the process of making similar changes to their TOU schedules as well.
These changes could significantly drive up operating expenses for large energy users across California, and will impact the economic performance of standalone solar photovoltaic (PV) systems deployed on-site.

Join us on Wednesday, July 18th, for a 30-minute webinar where experts from EnerNOC will:

• Walk through a sample California organization’s utility bills to illustrate the impact of changing TOU rates and schedules on costs
• Break down how these rates will disrupt the financial results of a standalone behind-the-meter solar PV system in California
• Explain how combining energy storage with a solar PV system would affect costs for a customer facing new TOU rates
