In September 2015, ScottMadden supported the Solar Electric Power Association’s (SEPA) fact-finding mission to Hawaii. The purpose of the mission was to explore impacts of high-penetration renewables and how lessons learned can be transferred to other utilities around the country.
The Hawaii experience provides lessons to others on how and how not to manage this transition to high penetration of renewables and distributed generation. The key takeaway is utilities and regulators should be proactive in order to get ahead of the wave or risk being overtaken by it.
