Value of Distributed Generation -Solar PV in Connecticut
Distributed energy resources (DERs) like solar photovoltaic (solar PV) systems provide unique value to the electric grid. In addition to avoided energy costs, behind-the-meter solar PV helps offset other costs associated with the electric grid and, ultimately, all ratepayers’ electricity bills. Document shows the results of Acadia Center’s assessment of the value of a solar PV system installed near Hartford, CT (assuming a marginal unit). The methodology is available for download here also.
