#Solar + #EnergyStorage Synergies for Managing #Commercial Customer #DemandCharges:

Demand charges, which are based on a customer’s maximum demand in kilowatts (kW), are a common element of electricity rate structures for commercial customers. The researchers say the earlier analyses showed that solar alone has limited ability to reduce demand charges, depending on the specific design of the demand charge and on the shape of the customer’s load profile. This latest analysis seeks to assess the incremental demand reductions from adding behind-the-meter storage in conjunction with solar. To do so, the study estimates demand charge savings from solar+storage systems based on simulations across a large number of commercial building types and locations, over a multi-year period, with varying solar and storage system sizes and a range of demand charge designs.
