Demand Side Monitoring (DSM) of energy demand-supply balance, for domestic and non-domestic energy stocks in the Province of Ontario, is studied. Exergetic design of distributed generation and renewable energy supply from solar photovoltaic systems, considering the Feed-In-Tariff of the Ontario Power Authority, is proposed. Analysis of these energy systems incorporates the historical usage data, with the facility load characteristics of the components, within these systems. The historical usage and simulated distribution of energy demand by devices provide a useful tool for reduction or possible elimination of the problem of surplus baseload generation. By adopting this bottom-up approach, demand forecasting based on independent modeling of end-user’s facility characteristics and meteorological conditions will enhance the capability of the Province’s Independent Electrical System Operator (IESO).
