Storage Ease Solar‘Value Deflation’as Grid Penetration Increases
Browse Time : 1179
At a distributed level, it can help solar owners decrease the amount of potentially lower-value solar power they export to the grid by allowing them to maximize self-consumption and optimize consumption in relation to time-of-use charges. At a system level, the value of storage lies in its ability to make solar essentially a dispatchable resource by shifting its generation hours to later on in the day when, without the benefit of storage, the array would not be generating. This would greatly increase the value of the power, in both economic and environmental terms.
