Clarksville Department of Electricity (CDE) proposes simple adaptable statistical techniques to estimate future PV adoption rates within specified geographic boundaries.
This project demonstrates how data from utility interconnection records, the National Renewable Energy Laboratories (NREL) System Advisor Model, and the United States Census might be used to estimate the economic and load impacts of PV adoption on electric utilities. This adds to the existing body of work in the field of solar economics by providing an additional single example of modeled hourly solar data compared to the hourly data collected from a solar array installed in CDE's service territory.
Take the opportunity to gain deeper insight into this project, and meet the team on April 6, 2021 from 2-3 p.m. EST.
Utilities hoping to accurately forecast the effects of PV adoption on their systems.
