Because of Jamaica’s high retail electricity prices, significant opportunity exists for DPV as an economic alternative. This paper reviews the effectiveness of Jamaica’s net billing pilot program, and identifies remaining challenges including a complex interconnection process, contractual ambiguity, and stakeholder equity concerns. The report provides several specific recommendations like shortening interconnection timelines, reducing caps on individual systems, and moving beyond a pilot phase. Many of these recommendations are applicable to other countries, particularly those with similarly high electricity rates.

Estimating the benefits and costs of DPV helps power system stakeholders evaluate appropriate regulatory measures and compensation programs for DPV. To inform these decisions, this report describes current and potential future methods, data, and tools to estimate the benefits and costs of DPV from the utility or electricity-generation system perspective. Although the report is explicitly written in the context of informing estimation of DPV costs and benefits to the United States electricity system, it provides insights relevant to power systems around the world.

The U.S. state of Minnesota has enacted legislation allowing investor-owned utilities to use a value of solar tariff as an alternative to net metering for DPV. This document details the methodology participating utilities will use to calculate the value of solar tariff to account for several values of DPV (including energy and its delivery, generation and transmission capacity, transmission and distribution losses, and environmental value). The methodology includes detailed example calculations for each step.

High penetration of DPV often leads to the infamous “duck curve,” the formation of two daily peaks in the morning and evening when PV is not available. This easy to read report assesses a variety of options to mitigate the “duck curve” from targeted efficiency, time of use rate design, storage, demand response, balancing, and complementing DPV with peak-oriented renewables. Implantation of these recommendations flattens the demand curve, allowing for additional DPV.
