California’s Changing Time-of-Use Rates: Calculating the Impact on Behind-the-Meter Solar PV and Energy Storage

Lisa Cohn recently completed a whitepaper for Enel X that explores the rise of solar power generation in Califoria — both behind-the-meter and at the utility scale — and how it has disrupted the dynamics of the supply mix supporting California’s electric grid. Utilities are adapting to these new realities with changes to their time-of-use rate schedules, which will have a significant impact on the business case for behind-the-meter solar PV and energy storage systems.

As if ransomware, malware, and phishing were not bad enough, electric utilities now need to worry about new cyber threats emerging from drones, artificial intelligence, and a grid made more vulnerable by the internet of things, or IoT.

“It just brings a total other layer of security issues that we are not prepared for as a population,” said Peter Morin, cybersecurity director at auditing and professional services company KPMG.
