We surveyed utility executives, customers, and regulators. Here’s what they had to say. Utilities are beginning to accommodate renewable energies, but many wonder if it is enough to keep up with consumer demand and prepare for new regulations.
Utility executives report solar has the biggest impact on their operations while regulators report a wider range of DERs having an impact.
Perspectives on which DERs are having the most impact on utility operations differ between regulators and utility executives, resulting in a mismatch between utility operations and how regulations may be implemented.
