California’s Net Energy Metering Program Is Changing, Again

Net Energy Metering (NEM) is the utility program which enables on-site (or behind the meter) energy installations (like solar) to earn credits for exporting electricity to the grid. Under the terms of the NEM program, electricity that is generated by …

Battery Energy Storage Systems and CCA NEM Customers

In our previous TerraBlog post, “How CCAs can model and deploy battery energy storage and DERs”, we shared a case study for using the Building Efficiency Optimization (BEO) software to reduce a community choice agency’s (CCAs) cost to …

How CCAs can partner with their NEM customers to reduce their Resource Adequacy costs with energy storage systems

In our previous TerraBlog post, How batteries can reduce CCAs GHG emissions, we shared the process of modeling the impact energy storage systems have on greenhouse gas emissions of a community choice agency (CCA). In this two-part post we …
