20,000 Homes Served During Non-Peak Times

Because of the intermittent generating capability of solar resources, it is important to recognize how they might impact the utility supply plan at different times of the year. Residential customer loads vary significantly throughout the year based on a number of factors including time of day, season, the individual home’s energy efficiency and demand response, and the availability and use of alternate energy sources such as natural gas.

During low demand periods such as warm spring and fall days, individual customer loads may drop below 1 kW, and 20 MW of solar capacity will supply up to 20,000 customers. During high demand periods, such as winter mornings and summer afternoons, loads on individual homes can be significantly more than 1 kW, and 20 MW of capacity may supply far fewer homes than during low demand periods. During periods of higher demand, the electric grid and utility generation resources are essential to the reliable supply of electric power to all customers.
