CPUC Decision Reduces Interconnection Cost Uncertainty

The CPUC has taken an important step in reducing the cost uncertainties and variability facing bioenergy developers.  In late June, the Commission adopted a “Cost Envelope Approach” to interconnection costs for distributed generation (electricity) projects that prevents utilities from increasing interconnection costs more than 25 percent between the initial estimate and final costs to interconnect.  The Decision also requires greater transparency so that, over time, costs should begin to go down for distributed generation bioenergy projects.  To learn more, click on the Final Decision, below.
