Watch this 3-min video which brings into light a simple, and cost effective solution.
The concept is charging the residential sector with a demand charge, exactly in the same way as industrial, commercial and institutional energy users.
Why does it make sense?
Once residential users pay for kW capacity the power supply chain will invest to accordingly meet the associated demand - plain and simple.
Is it affordable?
Yes because these days digital meters are very cheap and could be easily installed at each home.
What's the take away?
What is best for the whole society? Pay for the capacity and have power available anytime or keep going on with the current system which does not guarantee that the total demand in a hot summer day will be met?
