Customer Provides Photovoltaic Based Generation Source

This use case will describe the three tiered approach for a Customer to provide a PV based generations source on the Utility’s electric system. A Customer provides a PV based generation source utilizing existing metering technology to 15% of the feeder capacity. This is the baseline. The second scenario will include Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) meters into the installation for up to 15% feeder capacity. The final scenario will discuss how the Utility will work with a Customer to provide PV based generation sources utilizing AMI infrastructure, Home Area Network and two way communicating inverters that are controllable by the Utility to accommodate more than 15% of the feeder capacity. All three scenarios could be in effect at once in any section of the infrastructure.
