Negotiating the relationship with your local utility can make or break a microgrid project. Often large and bureaucratic, utiliites can feel tricky to navigate. Sometimes learning the hard way, our 15 years of experience working with them on distributed energy resources, microgrids and energy storage has taught us that there are steps that you can take to smooth the path. Using case studies from across the country, we will discuss when to engage with the utility, and review what information you should provide. We’ll also give pointers on the pitfalls to avoid.
