Following up on E2Tech’s successful forum on the needs of and issues with the regional electricity grid – the “macrogrid” – E2Tech is pleased to present a discussion of distributed generation (DG) and “microgrids” in Maine. What resources are available to fuel these systems? What T&D rate structure changes will support grid investment and reflect long-term benefits of locating DG in areas of reliability concerns? Benefits may include enhanced cyber-security, increased renewable sources of electricity like wind and solar power, and even integration of electric vehicles onto the grid.
