Interconnection & Distributed Energy Resources

At MVEA, we genuinely value your time, and our priority is to make the Interconnection/DER process stress free. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at anytime, we’re here to help.

What is a Distributed Energy Resource (DER)?

Distributed Energy Resource (DER) refers to any type of unit that generates power or stores energy on the distribution grid. This includes units that are installed on the member’s side of the meter as well. Common examples of DER’s are:

  • Solar
  • Batteries
  • Wind

What is an Interconnection?

It is the process of having DERs connected to the electrical grid and designed to operate together at the same time. This allows energy to flow into the local connected loads while also having the ability to produce excess energy that can flow onto the grid.
