Berkeley Lab, NREL study demand charges savings from commercial solar

By Kathie Zipp Berkeley Lab and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) released a new study, Exploring Demand Charge Savings from Commercial Solar. This study is the second in a series addressing demand charge reductions from solar photovoltaic systems. It focuses specifically on commercial customer demand charges and follows an earlier studyabout residential demand charges.

Commercial retail electricity rates commonly include a demand charge component, based on the customer’s demand level in kilowatts (kW). Customer-sited solar photovoltaics (PV) can potentially reduce the demand charge, depending on the customer load profile and the demand charge design. Berkeley Lab and NREL are collaborating on a series
