RAP has filed comments with the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) regarding the organization’s recently-released draft Distributed Energy Resources Compensation Manual.
In the comments, RAP commends NARUC for undertaking this work and makes specific suggestions for consideration on three broad aspects of the topic:
- The nature of distributed energy resources (DER);
- The need to identify the value(s) of DER; and
- Translating those values into utility rates.
