Building a tariff is useful in cases that you are unable to find a tariff under the "Choose Tariff from Database" option. HOMER Grid lets you quickly build a simple tariff.
A tariff created using the "Use Simple Tariff Builder" option:
•Can include one energy charge, one demand charge and one fixed charge
•Can allow for net metering
•Cannot cover tiered rates, time of use rates and other complex rate structures
To create a simple tariff, follow the below steps.
If you realize that your tariff is a lot more complex and cannot be built with this option, then select Use Advanced Tariff Builder application.
You can now access this tariff in HOMER Grid, by selecting "Choose Custom Tariff" as shown below -
