How to Reduce Energy Costs with Peak Shaving (HOMER Energy at Solar Power International)

For grid-connected commercial and industrial (C&I) customers, the demand charges associated with peaks in consumption during high-use periods can be substantial–up to 70% of the customer’s utility bill–and peak shaving is a great option to reduce these costs. In fact, a just-released National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) survey of U.S. demand charges found that more than 25% of commercial utility customers (or about 5 million customers)  in the U.S. alone would benefit from reducing peak demand consumption.
