    SENATE CONFRONTS SOLAR COSTS AND BENEFITS

    Congress debates distributed solar ahead of new legislation

    Garrett Hering, 17 March 2015 (PV Magazine)

    A U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing on national electricity grid reliability took contentious testimony from American Electric Power VP Lisa Barton and NARUC President/Florida Public Service Commission member Lisa Edgar, among others. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) advocated for distributed generation. Barton and Edgar cautioned about its costs and challenges. King said distributed generation, especially solar energy, are disruptive but “we have got to figure out how to adapt to it, not fight it and strangle it in its crib.” Barton said distributed generation is not “a disrupter” because the grid is “a natural enabler” of technology innovation. Edgar called for “transparency” on the benefits of distributed generation as well as on its costs and who pays them. “How do you value the plusses of distributed generation … versus the cost?” King asked. “The real question is how to facilitate rather than block what I think in the long run will be very salutary developments on behalf of all our citizens.” click here for more
