Flattening the duck curve through intelligent DER aggregation

solar-panels

Over the past decade, residential solar installations have been growing at a rapid rate. This trend has been driven by the confluence of favorable regulatory environments, investment incentives at both the federal and state levels, and increasing cost-competitiveness of solar technology.

As a variable and intermittent generation resource, solar production is not tied or responsive to load consumption. Thus, the increasing penetration of solar presents a set of daily challenges for utility and power system operators, whose primary concern is the continuous matching of the generation (supply) and consumption (demand) of electricity. Utilities and system operators must also focus on maintaining stability and service reliability throughout their service territory.
