California Distributed Energy Resources Guide
The California Distributed Energy Resources Guide is a public benefit site containing a wealth of information regarding distributed energy resources (DER). Distributed energy resources are small-scale power generation technologies (typically in the range of 3 to 10,000 kW) located close to where electricity is used (e.g., a home or business) to provide an alternative to or an enhancement of the traditional electric power system.
The DER information contained in this site will help you understand the current interest in DER, the various DER technologies, cost/performance issues, markets, and applications for DER. These topics are addressed in individual sections that can be accessed through the links listed in the column at the left.
