Solar Distancing: Trying to avoid peak electricity rates at home

As more solar is added to the grid, more utilities are changing their rate structures for homeowners, implementing “time of use” rates and “peak demand charges.” How are these higher rates and extra fees structured, and is there any way to combat them? Keith Marett, president of home energy management at Generac, explains how solar + energy storage systems, combined with active home energy monitoring, can work in tandem to save on monthly bills.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
