National Conference will highlight impacts of distributed generation

From the April 1, 2014 issue of Public Power Daily

Originally published April 1, 2014

Distributed generation, including rooftop solar, is playing a growing role in the electric utility industry. This creates a number of challenges and opportunities for public power.  At the 2014 APPA National Conference, panelists will address opportunities and benefits of distributed generation, while discussing the operational and revenue challenges and how utilities can encourage distributed generation development without unduly burdening other customer classes or adversely impacting utility operations and fiscal stability.  Panelists will also discuss their experiences and lessons learned.

Panelists will include Doyle Beneby, president and CEO of CPS Energy in San Antonio, Texas; Mark Bonsall, general manager of the Salt River Project in Phoenix, Ariz.; and Julia Hamm, president and CEO of the Solar Electric Power Association.

The 2014 National Conference will be held June 13-18 in Denver, Colo., at the Sheraton Denver Downtown. The conference will bring together more than 1,500 public power leaders, including utility boards, mayors, city council members, utility executives, senior managers, and industry partners. Conference registration and program information is available at
