Typically, DER’s includes some form of a commercial contract so the owner of the DER asset can participate in revenue streams offered by electricity grid market operators, or a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA) between yourself as the customer and the host providing the service and owning the asset.
DER’s are rapidly decreasing in cost and give consumers and industry more choice versus the traditional approach of buying all electrical power from the grid. Consumers can invest in DER’s, and not only generate their electrical energy with sustainable solutions but also benefit from market revenue streams that value the way DER’s support the grid.
Navigating the wide variety of options for DER’s can be complicated and in particular, for small businesses without dedicated resources to understand the regulation, technology, and contracts available. GRE is structured to support customers through the whole process – from origination, to deployment, through commercial operation. GRE is an integrated service provider supporting small and large customers along the entire development path.
