Description

This course will explore in depth how to model solar projects on Time-of-use (TOU) rates, and how they effect the 'value of solar' calculation. We will start by reviewing the key factors that influence the 'value of solar', and then run through some examples illustrating the effect. We will also cover how to setup and analyze proposed TOU rate schedule changes. We will run through two separate case study projects, which analyze TOU changes that California utilities are currently proposing.

Students will gain a strong understanding of the relationship between TOU rates and the 'value of solar'. This will enable them to better optimize and explain this type of analysis on their projects.

This video will utilize the Energy Toolbase software platform, which allows DER organizations to accurately, objectively and transparently analyze the economics of solar and energy storage projects.
