Attractive market opportunities for distributed generation may exist that require network interconnection.

Secondary networks are used in about 90% of the cities in the US having a population of >100,000 and in more than 1/3 of the cities with populations between 25,000 – 100,000.1

Some of the more attractive and most accessible market opportunities for DG involve commercial customers in urban areas:

Relatively high electricity prices

Reasonable gas prices, accessibility to gas

Electricity can be a significant operating cost

Customers care about costs, reliability, power quality and green attributes

Technical fit

-

Right size (I.e. MW) for some DG technologies (microturbines, fuel cells and recip engines)

-

PV opportunity

-

Cogen opportunity

It would appear that many of these customers are in urban areas on grid or spot networks.
