The CLEAN Resource Hub provides a wealth of free tools to help policymakers, utilities, and advocates in opening the wholesale distributed generation market segment throughout the United States.
In the Hub, you will find the tools you need to enact impactful policies and programs. Whether you want to bring clean energy online in your local community or across your entire state, our resources will put you on the right track. To familiarize yourself with the Hub, you can watch the introductory webinar or view the slides [PPT or PDF].
Wholesale distributed generation (WDG) refers to distributed energy systems that connect to the local distribution grid and deliver all their electricity to a utility for serving local energy demand. Notably, WDG comprises the majority of renewable energy capacity deployed worldwide, and opening this market segment in the U.S. is key to a quick and cost-effective transition to clean energy.
Across the country, there is a growing focus on WDG. Georgia Power, Long Island Power Authority, and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power are among the latest utilities to initiate or expand CLEAN Programs – feed-in tariffs with streamlined interconnection procedures – to create hundreds of megawatts of WDG market opportunity.
