 "Dinner TOD" 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm is often the power demand increase (ramping up) TOD. "Dinner TOD" is within "Carbon TOD" 2:00 pm to 10:00 am, a time of high GHG content. Depending on the amount of solar power, later in the afernoon, solar power output can have a large drop. In the near future, this drop in solar output could be as much as one third of the peak load. The power has to be replaced, it is often mostly replaced by natural gas powered generation that produces greenhouse gases (GHGs). The ramping up of the natural gas powered generation is costly in GHGs and dollars.

 "Carbon TOD" 2:00 pm to 10:00 am is often the TOD where the GHGs can't be avoided.

 "Solar TOD" 10:00 am to 2:00 pm is often the peak power output TOD for solar generation. More power is generated than can be used at this TOD, lowering the price of electric power. This causes negitive Real-Time Dispatch (RTD) prices, if the excess solar power is not curtailed or a buyer is not found. Using power during Solar TOD and not during Dinner TOD will help control GHGs and cost in dollars.

 SMUD should lower the price of a kWh of electricity to encourage more use during Solar TOD.

 If the electricity can not be used during Solar TOD, the amount of renewable power is lowered, risking SMUD not meeting their "Renewable Portfolio Standard" (RPS) requirements.

 Using more power during "Solar TOD" and less during "Carbon TOD" can reduce your carbon footprint.

 "Solar Time" rate offers a low rate during the high solar output Time Of Day (TOD) to encourage use of excess solar output and high rate for the high Greenhouse Gas (GHG) TOD referred to as "Carbon TOD" above.
  This rate is a rate SMUD shall consider in the SMUD Board's rate hearing as required by Ordinance-15-1.
 

 "Super Power" rate offers a low rate during the high solar output TOD based on California Independent System Operator (CAISO) study.
 This rate is a rate SMUD shall consider in the SMUD Board's rate hearing as required by Ordinance-15-1.
 

 "PG&E 2017 E-TOU-B-10%" rate will allow all SMUD customers access to a monthly bill 10% lower than what PG&E would charge for the same kWh usage. Some of SMUD's customers actually have higher bills than PG&E customers, even though SMUD claims lower rates!
 This rate is a rate SMUD shall consider in the SMUD Board's rate hearing as required by Ordinance-15-1.
