The sixth edition of the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc.’s (IREC) Connecting to the Grid Guide is now available on the IREC website. This guide provides a comprehensive introduction to a span of topics that relate to grid-tied renewable energy sources.
The sixth edition has been revised to include information on IREC’s recently updated model procedures, alternative billing arrangements for net metering, energy storage and several other emerging issues in the field. This guide is designed for state regulators and other policymakers, utilities, industry representatives and consumers interested in the development of state-level interconnection and net metering policies.
“Since the previous edition of this guide was published in 2007, there have been widespread advancements in renewable energy policy and technical considerations,”; said Laurel Varnado, one of the guide’s authors. “States often update their regulatory practices based on the direction that general trends and best practices seem to be heading. This guide provides a clear look at those trends as well as the necessary background information needed to interpret them.”
