The Clean Coalition works with electric utilities to understand and leverage the deployment of cost-effective distributed solar PV. This webinar detailed our work with Southern California Edison (SCE) conducting the Preferred Resources Pilot Solar Siting Survey. This assessment identified a massive level of local solar (PV) energy potential within the grid area that comprises the Preferred Resources Pilot (PRP), which is a leading effort by SCE to study and demonstrate high levels of distributed energy resources across a multi-substation grid area.

During this one-hour webinar, the Clean Coalition’s Programs Director Greg Thomson discussed:

  1. Why electric utilities should be assessing the potential for solar PV within their distribution grids
  2. What is the methodology for conducting a Solar Siting Survey
  3. How this information is useful for forward-thinking utility planning
