Shared resource renewable energy networks allow for the burden of high capital cost to be managed by sharing the cost and benefits of renewable energy use. In order to maximize the benefit gained from shared renewable energy, we propose a methodology to optimize the use of renewables via scheduling of energy use. By offering reduced energy rates, residents will be encouraged to run heavy energy consumers such as clothes dryers at times which improve the load generation and energy demand matching as deemed by a designed and optimized decision engine.
