This course delves into modeling NEM 2.0 (Net Metering Version 2.0) solar projects, using the latest version of Energy Toolbase. Enrollment includes a tutorial lecture, slides and an additional resource.
Energy Toolbase allows users to "model any NEM 2.0 scenario where exports to the grid are valued at less than the retail rate. Instantly determine how much energy is being exported and the effect that has on the projects’ economics."
Learning objectives & start times:
