Access the ISO’s forecast of the anticipated growth and impact of distributed generation (DG) resources on New England’s power system. Because solar photovoltaic (PV) resources are by far the largest component of DG, the ISO’s initial DG forecast focuses exclusively on future PV resources.
The DG forecast is:
For the forecast, DG resources are considered to be those with typically 5 megawatts or less in nameplate capacity that are interconnected to the distribution system (typically 69 kilovolts or below) according to state-jurisdictional interconnection standards. These may include both those installations that are located behind a customer load (i.e., behind-the-meter) and those that are interconnected directly to the distribution system without a customer load being present.
