      The amount of energy you use

      The time of day you use it

      The peak demand

      Interruptible 

 

Solar Economics 101

There is a lot of talk about the grid.

According to Ted Koppel cyber terrorism.

If this is tied directly into the grid we equip this system with a Rapid shut down which is required by utilities in the event the Grid goes down.

As an FYI, without this in the event of the grid going down you Would be sending electricity into the grid and endangering the utility line workers.
