Distributed Wind and Solar Interconnection Workshop to take place June 11 in Colorado

April 23, 2014

By Jeannine Anderson
The Utility Variable-Generation Integration Group will offer a one-day workshop on June 11 in Westminster, Colo., on interconnecting wind and solar generation to electric distribution systems. The workshop is cosponsored by APPA, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association. It will take place at Tri-State's headquarters in Westminster.

The primary focus of the one-day workshop will be a "hands-on" introduction to Internet-based tools developed by UVIG to assess a distributed solar or wind project's impact on the local distribution system. The workshop will review the theory behind these tools and will demonstrate how to use them. 

The registration fee is $300. For more information on the workshop, or to register, see UVIG's website

The Utility Variable-Generation Integration Group, previously known as the Utility Wind Integration Group, was established in 1989 to provide a forum for the critical analysis of wind and solar technology for utility applications and to serve as a source of information on the status of wind and solar technology and deployment.
