The first Strategy Advisory Committee (SAC) meeting for the interconnection barrier is being held at the WECC offices in Salt Lake City, Utah. The SAC meeting is part of WIEB’s Enhanced Solar PV Deployment project. The SAC is comprised of representatives from each western state, as well as non-state subject matter experts. During the meeting, WIEB and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) staff will present research findings related to the interconnection barrier. Additionally, WIEB staff will work with SAC members to start planning in-person visits to each state for outreach.
