    CESA to Lead Multistate Initiative to Develop Solar in Locations that Provide Benefits to the Grid

    Solar PV and other distributed energy resources (DERs) are playing an increasingly important role in electricity systems across the United States. When DERs are deployed optimally, they can offer benefits to the customer, to the grid, and to utility ratepayers. For example, optimally sited DERs can reduce grid congestion and help defer, reduce, or avoid distribution system upgrade costs. Likewise, targeted solar+storage deployments can provide resiliency benefits in an event of an electrical outage.
