California's Changing Time-of-Use Rates

Calculating the Impact on Behind-the-Meter Solar PV and Energy Storage

California’s rising adoption of solar power has altered traditional dynamics on the grid. In response, major electric utilities are changing time-of-use rate schedules, which impose higher prices for energy during certain hours of the day.  


Microgrid Knowledge and Enel X co-authored this whitepaper to help energy consumers understand: 

  • What’s behind the changes to time-of-use rate schedules in California
  • How the new rate schedules affect the business case for standalone solar projects
  • The projected impact on example energy storage and solar-plus-storage projects in the state
