A Model for Estimating Revenue from Avoided Demand Charges for Agricultural Operations Utilizing Anaerobic Digesters

This paper investigates how to estimate revenue from avoided demand charges that are part of a net-metering time-of-use contract that is seen in California. Utilizing fifteen minute kW data regarding supply and demand of electricity for a digester operator, simulation modeling was used to investigate electricity bills, specifically demand charges. Findings show that demand charges are an important component for a digester operator to be mindful of when selecting the individual’s initial engine configuration and maintenance scheduling.
