10:35 - 10:50 AM ET
As distributed energy resource interconnection applications surge across the Southeast, many utilities are challenged to keep up, processing growing volume with limited resources; this in turn is leading to growing backlogs and lengthy turnaround times. Many utilities are embracing digitalization, using automation and integration to do more with less. In this session, Clean Power Research CEO Jeff Ressler spotlights work done by a utility in the Southeast to slash their interconnection processing time from weeks to days, and shares insights into how other utilities can leverage digitalization to scale and streamline their interconnection programs.
