The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) recently released a report that includes model procedures and agreements for grid interconnection that could be adopted by the states. The Department of Energy (DOE) funded the report, which provides guidelines that are designed to produce standards that are not excessively burdensome or expensive, and still ensure safety and system reliability.
To view a copy of the report on the NARUC website, go to www.naruc.org/Programs/dgia/dgiaip.pdf.
