This filing represents the Clean Coalition’s comments on a new proceeding to address distributed energy resource (DER) interconnection issues pursuent to California Rule 21. We strongly support renewed attention to both new and outstanding issues in this area and recommended including several specific issues, such as: Clearly defined goals and direction, plus a “roadmap” for the future of interconnection; automation to support streamlining of processes and results; cost review; use of existing and planned facilities, plus associated cost responsibility; standardization of common charges based on categorical averages; and use of alternate approved providers for timely and more cost effective construction of required facility upgrades.
