Distributed Energy Resources


Distributed Energy Resources (DERs), are changing the way consumers, businesses and communities are meeting their electricity needs.


Thinking of DER project?

If you are considering a Distributed Energy Resource (DER) project, before you start work or purchase equipment, please review all the details in this Distributed Energy Resources Information section and then complete & submit the “Preliminary Consultation Information Request ” form to us.

These forms will assist us in checking to make sure there is electricity distribution capacity to connect a DER project in your area.
