SGIP (California's "Self Generation Incentive Program") is a nice try, and it will help stimulate the market for battery-based storage to soak up a small fraction of "off peak" PV generation. However, a longer term solution would be to institute electric rates that are market based in real time, as an alternative to today's fixed TOU periods and rate schedules. That would send the necessary market signals to shift consumption (and battery charging) to periods when there's "excess" renewable generation. This wouldn't be as sweet a deal for consumers as NEM 1.0, of course, but ultimately we'll need a more sustainable plan for adding renewables to the grid.


Texas now has such an offering from a company named "Griddy" :lol: . The 15 minute interval $/KWH pricing is used to calculate your energy cost. Distribution cost is fixed (or not affected by any "plans"). The cost for their service is a fixed ~$10/month subscription charge. They will look at your historical usage and estimate a cost savings for their contract based on (historical) energy costs. In TX, the energy cost component has actually decreased, likely due to nat gas prices being depressed, but not likely to seriously affect the actual savings.

This type of contract could promote limited battery storage, especially for the higher energy users. For me, using only $1200/year energy there is not much economic incentive. However, I'll likely give it a try when my existing contract runs out. Hopefully, by that time I'll have a way to use my old Leaf for energy storage!! :geek:

Are there any energy contracts available in other locations that incentivize peak load shifting, that are similar in principle to the Griddy plan?

Appreciate any inputs as I'd like to look at possible cost saving scenarios that can justify solar/battery installations.

Interesting report from Marktm concerning TX. What I have heard about TX:
State has a more or less "hands off" approach to regulation, gives utilities wide range to offer incentives or not. Many of their utilities discourage residential solar.

They have their own grid, separate from either East coast or West coast grid.
They burn coal for quite a big fraction of their electric generation, but natural gas has replaced some of their coal, have closed some coal generation plants.
Electric usage is high, A/C runs 24/7 for 9 or 10 months of the year, but prices $/kWh are low.
A decade or more ago they invested in major high voltage transmission upgrade which stimulated a boom in wind power, now over 20 GW peak, by far largest of any state.
They have surplus of wind power late at night more frequently than most other states.

Austin, less conservative than rest of state, has some interesting pricing. I believe on some plans electric is free late night.

Received letter from SCE "Here's how you compare to neighbors" for billing period Aug 23 to Sep 21

"Efficient neighbors" 638 kWh
Me 864 kWh
Av neighbors 1,001 kWh

They rate this as "good" not "great"

The 864 is correct sum over On peak, Mid peak, and Off peak for total consumption, but it ignores generation total of -697 kWh, for net usage of + 167 kWh. My TOU credit for period is -$63, cumulative credit for 8 months -$794, cumulative kWh -211.

So for this letter I only got credit for the power that I consumed "behind the meter"

I did not have my new additional 3.8 kW DC of solar installed this time last year, so my usage is up, but still lots of $ TOU cumulative credit to use up by Feb 2017. I hope to use up much of it this winter by running my heat pump in heat mode, avoiding natural gas.
