FleetView calculates behind-the-meter PV generation to inform gross load calculations and distribution planning.
Three Exelon companies (Atlantic City Electric, Delmarva Power and Pepco), experienced accelerated growth of residential solar installations in their service territories. In order to provide safe and reliable service while supporting solar adoption, the company needed the ability to accurately and cost-effectively estimate customer gross load that is obscured by behind-the-meter PV systems. In particular, they wanted to refine two critical areas: power flow analyses to screen PV interconnection requests; and load forecasts that support distribution system planning. To address these challenges, the companies chose to incorporate solar intelligence into their power flow modeling and distribution planning using SolarAnywhere® FleetView®.
