While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    ORIGINAL REPORTING: Can California avert new gas plants with distributed resources? Can California avert new gas plants with distributed resources? SoCal Ed offers a test case; Regulators will soon decide between two paths regarding SCE's proposed pilot — one where DER remains secondary to natural gas and another where they move to transform the distribution system.

    Herman K. Trabish, June 28, 2018 (Utility Dive)

    Editor’s note: SCE continues to move ahead successfully with the PRP.

    The second phase of the Southern California Edison (SCE) Preferred Resources Pilot (PRP) will ultimately be the largest scale test to date for the proposition that a portfolio of distributed energy resources (DER) can be as reliable as a natural gas plant in a transmission-constrained load pocket. The smaller first phase of the pilot was approved by state regulators with little controversy in 2016. More than 100 MW of preferred resources from a group of SCE-led and private sector programs are expected to be operational in the pilot area by the end of this summer. The SCE 238 MW PRP would eventually be the biggest real world test of the DER portfolio concept that Rocky Mountain Institute research shows can be as cost-effective and reliable as natural gas generation…

    California’s leadership in renewable generation remains unchallenged. Q1 2018’s 1,019 MW of new solar capacity were more than twice second place Florida’s 482 MW. Its 5,686 MW of installed wind capacity make it the fourth leading state and the only one in the top five outside the Midwestern wind belt. At 2:12 pm on May 26, California served 73.9% of its load with renewables. But the bulk of those numbers come from utility-scale generation on the transmission system. The California Public Utilities Commission's (CPUC) objective to reform utility distribution planning through the Distributed Energy Resources (DER) Action Plan is still a work in progress… click here for more
