Micro-Power Generators to Feed California Grid

2002-03-11 [SolarAccess.com] The California Independent System Operator (ISO) is using the energy challenges of the past year to pave the way for new opportunities to foster alternative energy resources. The grid operator is launching a pilot program that will maximize megawatts by allowing the output from units that generate less than a megawatt of electricity to be aggregated and sold into the market just like any other power source. The ISO’s Aggregated Distributed Generation Pilot Program (ADGPP) has the potential of adding a significant number of megawatts to California’s resources, while fostering the development of renewable generation and emerging technology. The program is designed to accommodate renewable generation such as wind and solar and emerging technologies such as fuel cells and micro-turbines.
