Free NABCEP CEU – Live Webinar on Utility-Scale PV and Distribution Voltage Challenges

Live Webinar – Wednesday, June 8th – 12-1:30pm EST – Reserve your spot on HeatSpring

If you or your company have worked on developing utility-scale projects, you know that connecting large PV power plants to the grid can present challenges, especially if there is a knowledge gap between the solar developers and distribution utilities. Level up your […]

The Basics of Utility Transmission for Utility-Scale Solar

Access to high voltage transmission lines is integral for utility-scale solar projects. Transmission is part of the high voltage system that connects generation (like utility-scale solar power plants or coal-fired power plants) with load centers, subtransmission, and distribution. Essentially, high voltage transmission lines take the electricity from where it’s produced to where it needs to […]

New Course: Connecting Utility-Scale Solar PV to Distribution Systems

The United States is forecasted to add an additional 21.8 GW of utility-scale solar in 2022 and 24.1 GW in 2023, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. In fact, they expect solar additions to account for nearly half of new generating capacity in 2022. That translates to a whole lot more large photovoltaic power […]

How Do We Get From 4% to 45%?

Today the Biden administration released a plan to increase the amount of solar energy produced from 4% of total generation (where it is today) to 45% by 2050. That represents a lot of growth for the solar industry.

What will that growth look like? Who are the key players needed to unlock that growth? What firms […]

Why Learn About Electric Utility Distribution Equipment?

Hi, my name is Tim Taylor and I have a course called “A Virtual Tour of Electric Utility Distribution Equipment”. I’ve been getting the question: “why do you have this course?”. It’s really to answer a lot of questions that people have when they begin to interact with utilities in a professional setting for the […]
