NREL facilitates the Distributed Generation Interconnection Collaborative (DGIC) with support from the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA), the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) to foster knowledge sharing on distributed photovoltaic (PV) interconnection practices, research, and innovation to:
- Identify and overcome data and informational gaps
- Address process and technical challenges
- Enable informed decision-making and planning for the anticipated rise in grid-connected, distributed PV resources.
Monthly meetings consist of discussions—presented in a webinar format—focused on specific PV interconnection practices and related research. Meetings are typically held the last Wednesday of each month, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. MST, unless otherwise noted.
