  • Based on interviews with over a dozen high solar utilities
  • Best practices to help low solar utilities quickly mobilize
  • Lessons learned from solar interconnection can also apply to new DER interconnection needs

Best Practices for Solar Interconnection and Beyond

On one end of the spectrum, some utilities are interconnecting thousands of photovoltaic (PV) solar systems per month with ease. On the other end, some utilities may connect only a few per year. However, as solar costs have declined, the number of installations of residential solar — and where these panels are located — is increasing significantly. This member brief, written in conjunction with Hoffman Power Consulting, explores utilities’ best practices for interconnecting ever-increasing numbers of PV systems, and how utilities in developing solar markets can adopt them for their own local conditions.
