Barriers and Solutions for Connecting PV to the Grid

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    This paper describes the conceptualization and initial analysis of the Issues Resolution Project, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. The goal of this project is to identify and help remove the barriers encountered by residences and businesses seeking approval to connect photovoltaic (PV) systems to the electric utility grid. Policy initiatives such as California's $54 million buydownprogram and President Clinton's Million Solar Roofs program are attempting to greatly increase the number of grid-connected PV systems in the U.S. The success of these initiatives depends on the ability of consumers to easily purchase, install, and interconnect PV systems.
