Solar Home Duck Curve

In the typical home, the highest energy usage does not coincide with peak solar production. In the summer, solar production peaks between noon and 1 pm, while energy usage peaks hours later at about 6 pm. In the winter months, solar production is lower and there are two, smaller peaks in energy usage in the morning and evening. These curves show data from 400 Sense homes with solar panels.
