The proof is in: Integrating PV into the grid is better with behind-the-meter solar forecasts

In recent years, Clean Power Research created a solar forecast method to accurately predict power production of “invisible,” behind-the-meter PV systems—typically those found on homes and commercial buildings. In our approach, forecasts are generated by simulating the power output of an individual system based on its defined specification and the predicted solar radiation at its … Continued
