Distributed Energy Resources (DER) is an area of emerging regulatory consideration both in Minnesota and nationally. As a result, the Commission engages stakeholders representing utilities, DER industries and consumers to participate in dialogue both as part of the formal docket process (ex. the Distributed Generation Workgroup advising the Commission’s update of the statewide interconnection standards and technical requirements) and informally to address emerging, non-controversial issues in a collaborative setting (ex. the Distributed Generation Advisory Group.)
