Utility Strategies for Influencing the Locational Deployment of Distributed Solar

Where are the best places to install solar?

What if utilities were able to help direct the location of distributed solar installations through market signals? This paper explores that, and other options. To date, most distributed solar installations have been determined by customer demographics and solar company business plans. Utility involvement to direct these installations could not only help put more solar on less constrained distribution feeders, it could also ease constraints in areas with significant interconnections.
