ConEd eases customer DER adoption while gaining data to improve grid planning

Consolidated Edison on Friday rolled out a new program designed to make it easier for customers to adopt distributed energy resources (DERs), by providing a device that simplifies the interconnection of solar panels or an electric vehicle charger. The utility will provide the ConnectDER device at no charge, while granular data provided by the device about energy customers' consumption and production will help Con Ed with grid planning and incorporating new resources. The devices will allow Con Ed to better understand what is going on inside the home, including disaggregating the contribution of distributed solar generation. Currently, Con Ed's advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) only captures a home's net load.
