Subscribe to digest

Dispersed Renewable Generation Response Map, Southern Minnesota On October 15th, 2008 from 1:30–3:30pm the Office of Energy Security hosted a webinar on the kickoff of Phase II of the DRG Study.

During the Phase II Webinar, study team lead Jared Alholinna of Great River Energy and Matt Schuerger of the MN Office of Energy Security gave a presentation reviewing the DRG Phase I report to the MN Public Utilities Commission and the steps forward that Phase II will be taking.

Phase I of the DRG study assessed how 600MW of renewable energy could be constructed without building new transmission. Phase II of the DRG study will be assessing the potential of adding another 600MW (or more), for a total of 1200MW of new clean energy.
