NRECA and PNNL are working on ways to expand the benefits of deploying solar PV and energy storage systems to communities with fewer financial resources. Solar PV smart inverters have a promising potential of acting as grid assets to provide more grid support. The optimal sizing and control of these inverters could potentially contribute to distribution grid optimization. Through the Achieving Cooperative Community Equitable Solar Sources (ACCESS) Project, NRECA and PNNL aim to identify the desired network impacts and to quantify the associated benefits.
