The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) recently issued a study entitled “Putting the Potential Rate Impacts of Distributed Solar into Context,” authored by Galen Barbose. The LBNL study estimates the potential rate impact of distributed solar on national average retail electricity prices, and importantly, compares that impact to the potential impact of other rate drivers such as natural gas prices, renewable portfolio standards, and utility capital expenditures.1 This brief applies a similar style analysis as used by LBNL to regional

Value of Distributed Generation - Solar PV in Rhode Island
Friday, May 6, 2016
Resource Type : VOS Study or Benefit Cost Analysis
Topic : Valuation, Analysis, BCA    
State : Rhode Island    
Author : Acadia Center
Adoption Year : 2015
Acadia Center assessed the grid and societal values of 6 marginal solar PV systems in Rhode Island to better understand the overall value that solar PV provides to the grid. The analysis determined the value of solar to the grid ranges from 19-25 cents/kWh plus societal values of approximately 7 cents/kWh. The results of the analysis demonstrate solar is a valuable local energy resource that provides benefits to all ratepayers and society by helping to reduce the cost of the electricity system. To do so, distributed energy resources must be fai
