Friends,

We are in the midst of a massive transition towards a renewables-based power system.

Our 2020 objectives, which seemed highly ambitious just a few years ago, now look increasingly attainable. Led by wind and solar, renewables provided half of all new U.S. generating capacity last year. Distributed solar alone comprised nearly 13% of new generation capacity. Such success is cause for celebration but not complacency. In fact, the Clean Coalition is busier than ever accelerating the transition towards renewable energy and a modern grid.

Given our technical, policy, and project development expertise, an increasing number of electric utilities are turning to the Clean Coalition for guidance on how to best leverage distributed energy resources, such as local renewables and energy storage. 

We are engaged with Southern California Edison on the Preferred Resources Pilot (PRP). Through this engagement, we assessed the technical market potential for distributed solar within the grid areas targeted by the PRP. The results, which contain critical data about prospective solar sites in these grid areas, will be made available on the Clean Coalition website in the next few weeks. Solar developers participating in the PRP Renewable Distributed Generation RFO may find this information highly valuable. Stay tuned for an announcement with details coming soon.

In addition, we are advising PSEG Long Island on the deployment of a Community Microgrid project that will enable greater deployment of local renewables, while strengthening a vulnerable portion of Long Island’s grid.

Engaging both utilities and policymakers is critical in the effort to use distributed energy resources (DER) to provide cleaner, more affordable and more reliable power. As the Clean Coalition broadens its engagements with utilities, we continue to drive policy innovation from California to New York

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
