CGA IS THE INTERCONNECTION EXPERT FOR SOLAR IN MISO

Working to stimulate market conditions and grow market demand through policy, grid enhancements and transmission to advance solar development in the Midwest.

Key Priorities Include:

Capacity Credit for Solar Resources

CGA is actively participating in discussions and have provided written comments to MISO.

Solar Dispatch in "Off-Peak" Times

CGA is actively working on this issue and advocating a reduction from the current 50% to 12 - 25% to avoid overbuilding or other barriers.

Interconnection Studies

CGA is currently advocating for common-sense interconnection policies at MISO for hybrid solar/battery, and solar/wind projects, as well as solar additions to existing wind (and other) generation. CGA works with members to change prohibitive policies to allow the cost savings and many other benefits that solar energy provides to be realized in the MISO footprint.

State Legislative and Regulatory Policy

CGA works on such issues as: land use, decommissioning, and siting standards for utility-scale solar projects.

State Policy and Utility Resource Plans

CGA works on state policies and utility IRPs that create the market for new solar development.
