DISTRIBUTED ENERGY
While distributed energy resources hold promise for improved environmental and economic sustainability, those who own and operate the electric distribution grid play a critical role in helping or hindering its advance.  Regulators and regulation are even more important, governing the compensation processes which drive utility choices.  The Wired Group's expertise in modern grid technologies, operations, economics, rate-making, and performance, combined with our experience supporting Staff, regulators, and environmental and consumer advocates in grid modernization proceedings, offer a unique value proposition.  Clients interested in unleashing the value of distributed energy at the least possible cost are encouraged to consider the Wired Group services described below.
