Quantifying the Benefits of Solar Power for California
Thursday, August 4, 2016
Resource Type : Research or Whitepaper
Topic : Valuation, Analysis, BCA    
State : California    
Author : Ed Smeloff
Adoption Year : 2005
This paper provides a quantitative analysis of key benefits of solar energy for California based on the best available data. It is not intended to be a comprehensive analysis of all of the benefits of solar power, many of which are difficult to quantify. However, it does document the value of solar energy to reduce peak demand for electricity, lessen the consumption of natural gas in power plants, avoid environmental damage from power plant emissions, help the electric grid operate more efficiently by reducing line losses and save investment ca

Louisiana Public Service Commission Docket No. R-31417. The comments assert the Louisiana Public Service Commission and Staff abate any action to adjust the benefits and burdens under Louisiana's net metering rule unless and until competent objective evidence is developed regarding the benefits and costs associated with distributed solar energy generation. The testimony makes recommendations based on the following: 1. the existing Louisiana Net Metering Rule is reasonable and consistent with the practice in the majority of U.S. jurisdictions; 2

There is a growing interest in customer-owned generation with a particular interest in photovoltaic (PV) systems. This has resulted in a growing number of analytical studies aimed at determining their value. Two difficulties that these studies have encountered are how to select the proper evaluation perspective and which benefits and costs to include in the analysis. This paper presents a framework to perform a more comprehensive analysis. It frames the established Standard Practice Tests used for demand side management cost effectiveness e
