The guide identifies objectives that cooperatives are looking to achieve and whether DER technologies and services may help provide them. It also discusses the wide variety of ways in which utilities, including many cooperatives, compensate participating DER consumer-members for providing value through DER programs and the equally varied means by which utilities can recover the costs of DER programs, including the role that aligning wholesale and retail pricing structures may play. Finally, the guide offers an overview of elements that cooperatives may wish to consider in developing a stakeholder engagement process for DER.
