Considerations with Distributed Generation: Uncertainties

Businesses face several uncertainties when purchasing DG equipment, including:

  • Energy costs - energy costs can vary significantly based on many factors including supply and demand, time of year, and location
  • The ability of DG technologies to reach commercialization while meeting emission requirements
  • The future of deregulation and the electric utility
  • Interconnection of DG equipment to the electric grid, from safety and control to costs and net metering
