Friends,
 
New laws in Hawaii and Vermont, requiring 100% and 75% renewable electricity respectively, highlight an accelerating shift towards clean energy across the United States. And the Clean Coalition continues to play an important part in this transition.
 
Our groundbreaking Long Island Community Microgrid Project kicked off earlier this month, and it will demonstrate how higher penetrations of local renewables
 paired with distributed energy resources (DER) like energy storage and demand response  can provide cleaner, more affordable, and more reliable power.
 
Through our Community Microgrid approach, the Clean Coalition is uncovering how to optimize DER within distribution grids, while creating new business opportunities for utilities and solutions providers alike. The combination of our expertise in distribution grid planning and associated procurement and interconnection policies is proving to be highly effective. Recent examples of this expertise in action include collaborations with Southern California Edison to identify siting opportunities for distributed solar and Alameda Municipal Power on pathways to support customer-sited solar.
 
While much of our work is conducted in collaboration with utilities, municipalities, and state agencies, the Clean Coalition is always focused on scaling our successes across the country. Recently, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) adopted our recommendations to improve transparency for critical interconnection data. We are proud to have leveraged our interconnection work in California to shape this FERC ruling, which will become a jurisdictional standard and streamline the deployment of clean energy nationwide.
 
As always, thank you for supporting the Clean Coalition and its pursuit of making clean local energy accessible now.
 
Sincerely,
Craig Lewis
Founder and Executive Director

We conduct Solar Siting Surveys to help utilities, cities, and communities understand the potential for local solar generation. Recently, we were contracted by Southern California Edison to identify the potential for solar PV installations within the Preferred Resources Pilot grid area, and we hosted a webinar about this work.

Palo Alto continues effort to spur local renewable generation
The Palo Alto City Council voted to preserve Palo Alto CLEAN's existing pricing of 16.5 cents per kilowatt-hour and to provide several enhancements to the program. The Clean Coalition is heavily engaged in accelerating the deployment of the city's renewable energy projects.

The Clean Coalition was the only organization to intervene in a motion with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to reform interconnection reporting methods. The result of our efforts sets a jurisdictional standard for publishing interconnection data and allowing easier access to information.
