With today's time-of-use rate strategies, and particularly the consistent modifications to the rates (pricing) of the time-of-use strategies, it gets very difficult to know what is the finest TOU strategy for each household. No video can discuss the very best electrical power pricing prepare for you due to the fact that your energy usage today and into the future are unique.

With time-of-use billing and net metering, the excess energy your rooftop photovoltaic panels and your home solar system produce are sold back to the energy. When the sun sets, you 'purchase back' that energy. If you include the ability to save the green energy that your photovoltaic panels produce with a home battery, then you have another option of what to do with your extra electrical power (and remember, it's eco-friendly energy).
