Article Excerpts:

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.
