On March 28th, the CPUC released E3’s study of the technical potential for, and associated costs of, local distributed PV in California. To be considered “local” in the study, distributed PV must have its output consumed by local load within the area of the substation or feeder to which it is interconnected. The study thus entails detailed assessment of PV interconnection potential by substation for California’s 3 large IOUs. The study finds total interconnection potential ranging from roughly 6,000 – 16,000 MW depending on interconnection criteria or rules.
