The good news is that we know what to do. Interconnection has been studied extensively by numerous industry groups and research organizations, which have arrived at some essential guiding principles for reform.
High temperatures can affect different components of PV systems. Inverters can fail, the efficiency of solar modules can decline, and existing cell damage can become worse. However, investors, planners, and operators can adjust to heat waves in a number of different ways.
No two projects are alike, and sharing the lessons learned from working on these highly complex systems can help accelerate the deployment of energy storage with essential clean energy assets.
NEM 3.0 would be disastrous for locally produced solar energy and harm vulnerable communities who want access to local solar and jobs.
A case study on the efficacy of residential solar and energy storage in forming virtual power plants during peak demand events is shared by Dr. Ahmad Faruqui, economist-at-large and grid controls expert.
FERC’s proposal could open up the interconnection backlog and pave the way for solar and storage projects to be completed more quickly, resulting in much more solar and storage being deployed, and moving us closer to meeting our climate and energy goals.
Passing the climate and clean energy jobs provisions of Build Back Better is our best chance to achieve the necessary reductions and avert climate disaster; we simply cannot wait any longer.
Hawai’i Senator Chris Lee voices support for a program that would allow residential solar and energy storage customers to enroll in battery aggregation programs, strengthening the resilience of the grid.
