Connecting to the Grid Guide

2010
Event type: 

Times are EST - Net metering and interconnection policies are essential pieces of a supportive modern state-level regulatory policy framework addressing two important aspects of renewable energy development: whether a customer investing in renewable generation can unlock the full value of his or her investment; and how that customer will interconnect his or her generation system to the distribution grid.

This seminar is designed to provide participants with a better understanding of the key issues in these policies and the process behind rulemaking proceedings at state utilities commissions. Participants will gain an understanding of the prevailing trends in net metering and interconnection policy and how IREC approaches its work in advocating best practices. States which are considering the revision of 1st or 2nd generation rules will benefit from the presentation of recent engineering-based analysis of the previously made "cross-subsidy" claims, along with evidence on the expansion of unreasonably low aggregate limitations.

This webinar will also hit the highlights of IREC's recently released Connecting to the Grid Guide, 6th edition. The Connecting to the Grid Guide is an important tool that is designed for state regulators and other policymakers, utilities, industry representatives and consumers interested in the development of state-level interconnection standards.
