Utilities and regulators are responding to the growth of distributed generation with new business models and approaches.

The growing role of distributed resources in the electricity system is leading to a shift in business models and regulation for electric utilities. These organizations are evolving in any number of ways, from organizational structures and regulatory frameworks to new customer offerings and rate designs. While just a few leading utilities and states have so far taken action, the scope of these changes is expected to widen as DG PV reaches more markets.

Webinars, publications, and blogs are available related to business models and regulations.
