WIEB Distributed Solar PV Interconnection Project Outreach


WIEB staff have been traveling to states across the West as part of outreach to discuss findings from a research project looking at barriers to solar PV deployment related to the interconnection process. This research has culminated in two reports, “Review of Interconnection Practices and Costs in the Western States” and “New Approaches to Distributed PV Interconnection: Implementation Considerations for Addressing Emerging Issues” (forthcoming).
WIEB conducted outreach for the interconnection project in five states in 2018: California, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming. In 2019, WIEB also plans to visit Arizona, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington to present interconnection research findings.
This work is part of the wider Enhanced Solar PV Deployment project funded through a cooperative agreement between the US Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office and the Western Interconnection Regional Advisory Body (WIRAB).
