Missouri Wind And Solar Podcast
What Is Peak Shaving And How Does It Impact Your Bill?
In this podcast episode, Wes and David from Missouri Wind and Solar discuss the concept of peak shaving. They start by defining what peak shaving is and why it is important for electricity consumers.
Peak shaving is the process of reducing the amount of electricity used during peak demand periods, typically during the hottest or coldest parts of the day when energy usage is at its highest. This helps to balance the energy grid, prevent power outages, and avoid the need for utilities to build more power plants to meet peak demand.
Wes and David then talk about various methods of peak shaving, including the use of battery storage, demand response programs, and energy-efficient appliances. They discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each method and provide examples of how they have helped their customers reduce their energy bills and contribute to a more sustainable energy future.
Throughout the podcast, Wes and David share their expertise and experience in the renewable energy industry, providing insights and advice for listeners who are interested in implementing peak shaving strategies in their own homes or businesses. They also touch on other topics related to renewable energy, including solar power, wind turbines, and energy efficiency.
