Modeling NEM-3 Scenarios in ETB Developer, and the Mechanics of how Avoided Cost Calculator (ACC) Export Values are Determined

Given that NEM-3 will erode the value of solar, developers can use the impending NEM-3 proceeding to their advantage by comparatively presenting both NEM-2 and NEM-3 savings and economics, to get their customers to commit and move their project forward now. In ETB Developer we now offer an accurate, objective, and transparent workflow for modeling NEM-3 scenarios which is detailed below.
