Planning / Interconnection

Distribution system planning is evolving as the industry experiences increased levels of distributed generation, energy storage, and demand response. Electric vehicle charging needs are forecast to grow substantially in some areas over the next decade. The business environment is also changing as rate-making evolves, and considerations such as non-wires alternatives must be addressed.

With changing regulations and solution costs, utilities and resource developers are interested in creating and updating plans for upgraded and new generation and transmission assets. Utilicast can help you navigate state and federal regulations and market conditions and rules to guide and inform your generation and transmission planning efforts.

Utilicast can assist organizations in improving their distribution planning processes, including risk-based planning criteria selection, load forecasting, DER growth scenarios, and improved utilization of AMI, operational data, and third-party data sources in distribution planning.
