What are time-of-use utility rates?

Many electric utilities have moved to a time-of-use rate structure. This means the price of power is high when demand is high - but it's not just the time of day impacting your power bill. The day of the week, and even the season, impacts pricing. Managing your power costs is complex because your home's solar system is producing the most energy during daytime periods of low demand when electricity is worth the least amount of money.

Typical time-of-use rate structure

Electricity costs more during times of peak demand, which is highest during the evening hours. This rate structure has an impact on both solar and solar plus battery storage systems.


Solar power only

Solar power can only be consumed as it's produced, otherwise it's fed back into the grid and you're credited for that power. However, the amount you're credited varies based on the time of day. Excess power generated by your solar system is worth less during times of lower demand. The solar energy production curve peaks mid-day when the cost of power is at its lowest. Solar production has often ceased in the evening when the cost of power is at its highest, so during peak times you'll purchase power from your utility when it's most expensive.


Solar power + battery storage

Adding battery storage allows you to offset the effects of time-of-use by maximizing your self-consumption. Power produced during the day is stored in batteries and used in the evening when the cost of power is at its peak. The value of battery storage can increase your home's annual energy cost savings by up-to 45% and decrease the payback period for your system by up-to 16%.
