RE-AMP would like to highlight the work of member group Natural Resources Defense Council and a document jointly released with the Edison Electric Institute, simply titled “EEI/NRDC Joint Statement to State Utility Regulators,” which identifies policies to help guide a rapidly changing electrical grid.

While the organizations have issued joint statements in the past, the latest version is noteworthy because it wades into the thorny issue of distributed generation, which many see as posing an existential threat to traditional utility business models. The agreement recognizes the continuing trend of customers installing their own generation, while calling for policies to ensure utilities are fairly compensated for maintaining those customers’ access to the grid.
