​IEEE Standard 1547™ defines interconnection requirements for distributed energy resources (DER). The significant growth in DER interconnection applications has substantial impact on utilities, the reliability of the grid, and the quality of electric service to customers. This standard has been undergoing major changes in response to the changing DER market.

NRECA is closely tracking what is happening with this standard, to keep members informed and encourage their involvement in the related ballot processes. The following are available resources. Visit here often to see new information.
