Energy and Capacity Valuation of  Photovoltaic Power Generation in New York
Thursday, August 4, 2016
Resource Type : Research or Whitepaper
Topic : Valuation, Analysis, BCA    
State : New York    
Author : Richard Perez, Thomas E. Hoff - Clean Power Research
Adoption Year : 2008
This initial investigation in the value of photovoltaic (PV) power generation for New York focuses on the value to utilities. Specifically, the report asks whether PV netmetering constitutes a loss to the utilities which would negatively affect their rate payers. The value of customer-sited PV generation to a utility includes generation-level energy and capacity, as well as environmental compliance benefits, fuel price hedge protection, and location specific-transmission and distribution (T&D) and loss savings benefits.
