Superior Value Of Distribution-Interconnected Generation Brief

The cost of delivering energy from the point it is interconnected to the grid to the point that it is consumed by a customer can be greater than the wholesale purchase price of the energy itself. As a result, the true ratepayer cost of energy is often lower for generation that is interconnected to the distribution grid than for generation that is interconnected to the transmission grid. To understand the superior value of distribution-interconnected energy, it is vital to consider the hidden costs of delivery. This Clean Coalition briefing discusses key factors in determining true cost of delivered energy, including grid development, transmission charges and line losses. Download the brief here.
