Electrical Distribution Design, Inc. Awarded Research Contract Instrumental to the Future of Solar Power Jan. 23, 2014

Blacksburg, VA: Electrical Distribution Design, Inc. has been hired by the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute, which is part of the University of Hawaii, to analyze the effects of integrating smart grid technology into the existing Maui Electric Company grid. The Interconnection Requirement Study will evaluate the impacts of high penetration of distributed rooftop photovoltaic, or PV, systems that are connected to the study circuit and to determine what modifications or upgrades would be required to allow a higher penetration of PV systems in the future.
