Congratulations to our Business Intelligence Analyst, Jared Combs for his contribution of information to APPA’s distributed energy resources article. His extensive research on compiling accurate data on the effect of solar penetration and solar output on utility revenues has uncovered imperative information. Please click on the link below to read the full article on Jared’s key findings.
CDE Lightband has used a Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments (DEED) grant from the American Public Power Association to conduct and refine an analysis of the effects of solar power penetration on the Tennessee public power utility’s operations.
The DEED project had three goals: develop simple models for forecasting solar adoptions at the local level, compare the modeled solar output with actual solar power output, and evaluate the forecasts of those models on utility revenues and load curves.
