Participants would be served under the time-of-use (TOU) rates approved by the Commission in the NEM Order and would have complete control of the use of the energy storage device. This is called the Residential Solar Choice rate schedule (policy), and is the policy that anyone going solar in 2027 onwards would be on.
Participants would be served under the Bridge Rate. Participants would be required to participate in a new program called Battery Control (Duke controls the battery). Under Battery Control the customer's battery could be controlled by Duke up to 36 “control events” per year, a minimum of 30 control events per year – when these events are not in progress customers can use their batteries however they want.
Cohort B participants would receive an additional monetary incentive of approximately $40 per month, or $480 per year, based on Duke’s discharging of the battery.
Some energy companies in North Carolina charge customers a blended rate that comes from dividing the amount due on your bill by the total kilowatt-hour consumption during the billing period. These blended rates give an accurate ROI estimation in theory, but they fail to account for seasonal demand.
At 8MSolar, we don’t use blended rates when calculating the financial impact of your solar energy system because it artificially inflates your ROI. Instead, we take all measures to produce accurate, verifiable numbers, so you can take our ROI estimate to the bank, literally.
