The “Duck Curve” Graph
In the graph it demonstrates a “Duck Curve” which shows the extreme changes in grid demand that occurs throughout a day as a result of the rapid uptake of solar power.
A noticeable dip in grid power demand can be seen as the sun rises. Smart homes & businesses with solar panels generate their own electricity and require little, if any, power from the grid. In fact, many solar owners generate excess solar power and export it to the grid, further reducing the need for dirty-coal-power to be generated.
