Examining the Effects of Non-Bypassable Charges with Load Profiles and Systems Designed in Aurora
Net Energy Metering (NEM) 2.0 is now the official utility rate policy for solar customers in California – but few people truly understand what it means for the returns of residential solar installations or how solar designs should be adapted to maximize savings under this policy. We evaluated over 600 solar projects designed in Aurora to determine how NEM 2.0 changes the financial returns from solar. Next, we analyzed over 900,000 design variations to identify the new design best practices to account for NEM 2.0. Our surprising results highlight how NEM 2.0 is both a great challenge, and a great opportunity for the solar community.
