Workshop on Rule 21 Program Evaluation — Draft Research Plan: 27 June 2019, 9am PT

This workshop provided an opportunity to give feedback to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on the Rule 21 Program project plan and research questions. The CPUC is undertaking a comprehensive evaluation of utility administration of the Rule 21 tariff to provide data and insight into each utility’s administration of the tariff. Rule 21 describes the process a developer must follow to connect their distributed energy resource (DER) to the grid.

  Tell the CPUC to support WDG interconnection

Rule 21 Interconnection Discussion Forum: 25 June 2019, 1:45pm PT

At the quarterly meeting of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Rule 21 Interconnection Discussion Forum, this topic was discussed: Utilities commonly require wholesale systems interconnecting under Rule 21 to install separate interconnection facilities when existing facilities serving on-site load may have sufficient capacity. Is the requirement to install separate facilities necessary to support safe and reliable interconnection? If not, how should the Commission address this utility practice?
