This year’s survey confirms that utilities are taking actions necessary to accommodate increasing penetrations of DERs on the grid, yet those actions are not at the rate required to keep ahead of customer demand and regulators’ expectations.

- The customer experience side of DERs (and what customers say about it)
- The opportunities and threats if utilities don’t quicken the pace of DER integration
