C&I Behind the meter - hourly day ahead prices and demand charge

Mon, 12 Dec 2022 15:12:32 GMT

Is there a route to model / approximate a site that is exposed to hourly day ahead energy prices on a pass through basis but also optimize for a monthly demand charge? I have tried to modify the retail tariff csv file to match this but DER VET simulation ends in an error and I'm unsure what aspect caused it to fail?

Yes, just select the wholesale energy price option instead of retail energy prices in the "services" tab along with "demand charge management". This should prompt you for wholesale energy prices, a retail tariff (but will only use the demand charge components), and a site load. If need be, enter an all-hours energy price in the retail tariff to avoid input validation issues. This will not be used to calculate energy costs.
