by Austin Perea

Regulators have recently approved SDG&E’s proposal to shift time-of-use peak periods. With that precedent in mind, regulators are assessing similar proposals from the remaining IOUs that will be determined by end of 2017 that will also prove deleterious to project economics.

In this short report, GTM Research has partnered with BlueFlame Energy Finance to run a scenario-based analysis across a variety of different rate structures and 16 different building types to determine the range of impacts a TOU shift will present to commercial solar economics.

This report is only available to subscribers of GTM Research's U.S. Downstream Distributed Solar Service.
