Lessons from the Front Line: Principles and Recommendations for Large-scale and Distributed Energy Interconnection Reforms
The new whitepaper from Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), "Lessons from the Front Line: Principles and Recommendations for Large-scale and Distributed Energy Interconnection Reforms," discusses the various opportunities utilities and regulators have to standardize, automate, and clarify interconnection procedures and policies.
“If we don’t make major strides on interconnection reforms in the next few years, it will be impossible to achieve our more aggressive state and national clean energy goals,” said Sean Gallagher, vice president of state and regulatory affairs at SEIA. “Improving project interconnection must become an urgent priority for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, distribution utilities, and state commissions if we want to build an equitable clean energy economy this decade.”
