Solar and embedded generation research and reports

Generating electricity is becoming more common with over 50,000 households in our service area now generating their own power from solar or wind. And it’s not just households, businesses are also investing in solar and gas fired generation.

Our investigations into solar, wind and embedded generators has helped us to improve our demand management solutions and has informed our policy makers about integrating solar and embedded generation into the electricity network.

Reports and summaries from our investigations are available below.
