Your energy bill is not just how much energy you use but the “rate” at which it is used and also “when” you use it: a combination of consumption (energy), demand (power) and Time-of-Use. Demand is defined by Southern California Edison (SCE) as: “The measure of how much electricity is used at a single point in time” and is charged by kW (kilo-watts) vs energy use which is charged by kWh (kilo-watt hours). The utility infrastructure (“the grid”) must be prepared to provide a certain level of power demand, varying on the time of day – PEAK demand occurring around early evening (4pm-9pm). The Utility collects Demand Charges to cover the cost of Grid Upgrades necessary to be capable of providing power up to the level of Peak Demand. Generation and Distribution of Power requires sufficient powerlines, transformers, substation facilities, but most expensive of all Power Plants!

There are two different demand charges billed by the utility: Facilities Demand and Time-Related Demand.  According to SCE website, “Facilities Demand Charges apply at all times throughout the year, calculated per kilowatt (kW) according to your highest recorded demand during each billing cycle—no matter what season, day of week, or time of day, while Time-Related Demand Charges only apply during the summer season (June 1 through September 30), when demand reaches its peak and costs are highest. Time-Related Demand Charges are assessed each month during On-Peak hours & also during Mid-Peak hours. Time-Related charges are in addition to and separate from a Facilities-Related Demand Charge.”

Energy Storage for Lower Grid Demands = Happy Solar Consumers!

Energy bills come with so many charges, so what do we do?  ADD BATTERIES, of course! Solar combined with Storage allows for saving on not just Energy Consumption costs, but also Power Demand charges – this means Overall Bill is able to be reduced to lowest possible result. Solar generation generally happens during hours that fall within what is called “Off-Peak TOU rate schedule” (8am-4pm) times when value of energy is at its lowest. During the evening times, PV systems are not producing energy and ‘coincidently’ lines up with “On-Peak TOU schedule” (4pm-9pm) – when energy and power costs are at their highest.

With Batteries, energy produced during the day that isn’t immediately consumed can get stored for usage later in the evening to avoid (high cost energy) imports from “The Grid” and reduce Peak Power level that “The Grid” must provide (reduce demand charges). Good for everyone!

Value of Solar Energy MAXIMIZED with addition of BATTERIES!

Solar Industry
By Matthew Mercure -August 12, 2020

BloombergNEF has predicted that at least 50,000 California homes will install storage systems this year. That figure would quadruple the total from 2019. The forecast came on the heels of a year of record-breaking growth for home solar storage in the U.S, due to the increased need for blackout protection and utility rate hedging. (Click to read rest of article)

“Australians are stocking up on renewable energy storage in response to the global COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. In a new press release, a solar firm in New South Wales called Smart Energy reports a 400 percent increase in customer inquiries in the last two weeks, reflecting public panic over shortages and any hypothetical changes to infrastructure during a global crisis.”

AUGUST 28, 2019 PV MAGAZINE By Tony Clifford

“In February 2018, President Donald J. Trump imposed 30% tariffs on imported solar modules (the infamous Section 201 tariffs) in an attempt reputedly to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States. Solar industry advocates warned the tariffs would bring projects to a screeching halt and irreparable damage would be done to one of the fastest-growing segments of the U.S. economy.”

Agriculture Solar Ground Mount

By Nathanael Johnson on Aug 6, 2019

More and more farmers in California are benefiting from solar to save on energy costs and increase monthly cash flow.

From smaller farms like Bowles Farming Company, near Los Banos, California, who installed solar on four acres to help offset the energy needed for a drip-irrigation system which they say is paying off to Lynda and Stewart Resnick, largest farmland owners in America, who are installing a solar system on their Wonderful Company farmland north of Bakersfield.
