Information and analyses on the potential application of SSEG in low-income areas.

Low and mid income SSEG PV model

The spreadsheet model evaluates the impact on municipal revenue and household electricity costs if a low/mid-income household invests in a grid-tied rooftop photovoltaic (PV) system. The model compares household electricity costs for two scenarios called ‘Without SSEG’ (without a rooftop PV system, i.e. the default) and ‘With SSEG’ (with a rooftop PV system) (Conway and
