WEBINAR: ETB Masterclass: Optimizing the economics of C&I Solar + Storage projects in California

by Tracy Fosterling on Feb 04, 2021

California storage savings

C&I storage


We recently completed a rigorous, months-long analysis where we studied the economics of solar + storage projects on every C&I (commercial and industrial) utility rate tariff in California’s Investor-Owned Utility (PG&E, SCE, SDG&E) territories. The objective of our study was to identify the characteristics of the most attractive projects, including utility rate tariff, customer load profile type, PV + ESS system size, and rate switching scenario. We discovered several important findings that we shared on this webinar.

  1. What are the best and worst utility rates for solar + storage economics?
  2.  What are the best and worst types of customer load profiles? How much variance can there be?
  3. What are the best practices for rate switching to optimize for PV+ESS economics?
  4. How to optimally size both the PV & ESS for optimal ROI?
  5. How to quantify and attribute non-utility bill savings value streams, including resiliency, grid services, and future-proofing?
