Groundbreaking California Rule Transforms How Renewables Connect to the Grid

Reading Time: < 1 minute


  • The California Public Utilities Commission is simplifying the interconnection process for distributed energy resources (like solar) and providing valuable transparency for project developers.
  • This will replace parts of the frequently imprecise expedited screening processes that can result in costly, time-consuming, and often unnecessary project reviews.
  • “Today’s decision by the CPUC takes the first step toward a vastly improved interconnection process that better reflects the realities of the grid and makes it faster and easier to install the levels of clean energy that will be needed to reach California’s decarbonization goals,” said Sky Stanfield, Partner at law firm Shute, Mihaly & Weinberger.
