Why perform demand-side management (DSM) before implementing solar PV?
Thinking of going solar? Demand-side management (DSM) will ensure the best return on your solar investment. DSM optimizes a facility’s energy demand and consumption and cut its cost. It includes actions that optimize applicable tariff options (peak shaving, change in utility tariff category), reduce waste (energy conservation measures) and options which provide an optimal load profile for solar PV self-consumption (load shifting). As DSM identifies the concrete capacity of the new Solar PV, it thus reduces the level of investments.
