In the past few years, utilities across the country — from Indiana to Massachusetts to Arizona — proposed mandatory or voluntary demand charges for residential customers. With the right resources and knowledge, it is definitely possible to reduce your monthly bill on a demand charge rate. But in many situations, including often for people with solar on their roof, demand charges can lead to more expensive bills overall.
Last week, EnergySage released our seventh Solar Marketplace Intel Report™. Within the report, you’ll find a wealth of data regarding solar pricing trends, the most popular modules and inverters, and the growth in solar interest by state.
It is an exciting time to be in the solar industry. This week marks the solar industry’s largest annual trade event: Solar Power International (SPI). EnergySage sent a team to Anaheim to see the latest and greatest technological advancements in the industry, discuss how federal and state policies impact the cost of solar in your state, and hear predictions from industry insiders for what to expect from solar in the next few years.
