This report describes current trends in retail rate design, and implications of those trends for distributed energy resources (DERs).
The study focuses specifically on these five trends:
Based on a set of case studies, the report discusses key motivations, rate design variations, and implementation experience across each of these five trends. The report also discusses how each of these trends might impact the deployment of distributed solar and other DERs.
