Paul Nussbaum3/24/2022 1:27:27 PMThe efforts of First Presbyterian Church of Haddonfield to install solar panels on the roof of its education building (Job #500914763) have been stymied by PSE&G's denial of the right to export excess power to the grid. This denial effectively blocks First Presbyterian's ability to go forward with the project. PSE&G contends that if "too much" power were to be exported by First Presbyterian, it could open up network protectors and shut down part of the network, adversely affecting other customers. But PSE&G acknowledges that if the amount of power exported by First Presbyterian were "low enough," there would be no adverse affect on the network or other customers. PSE&G has not worked with First Presbyterian to determine how much power would be "low enough" to be safely exported or what other steps, such as connection to another network or a revision of the project size, could be taken to permit the project to go forward. PSE&G's position is arbitrary and capricious, since it relies on no specific amount of power export and proposes no alternative. The BPU should promptly take steps to mandate the necessary upgrades to area networks to permit the export to the grid of specified amounts of electric power.

S. Balakrishnan11/16/2021 9:12:29 AMDear Ms. Camacho-Welch, ANB Systems, Inc. (ANB) appreciates the opportunity to provide comments on the distributed energy resource (DER) interconnection process in New Jersey. ANB is a leading provider of business process automation with an emphasis in the energy utility industry. One of ANB’s products supports the customer application process and the utility interconnection approval of DERs. Last year, ANB facilitated its 50,000th utility DER interconnection application. ANB offers these observations on successful interconnection processes. Guidehouse, in their presentation on October 26, 2021, noted that the current interconnection processes at Electric Distribution Companies (EDC) are a combination of software, PDF/email, or web portals. Having a consistent statewide interconnection process will simply the process for not only for DER developers but customers as well. Having a workflow that logically proceeds from the first steps to the last and reducing redundant information requests, the customer or developer will know where their application stands in the queue and will reduce the amount of back and forth between the customer/developer and the EDC. It is ANB’s experience that system automation can significantly reduce application time. In fact, a utility recently reported that using an automated process has reduced review time for DER interconnections from 3 hours in a manual process to seven minutes via a portal; a significant reduction in processing time. Many of these applications are now administratively processed by the system. Business process automation can aid the approval process. However, training the developer/installer community on the DER application process and how correctly submitted information leads to faster submittal is just as important. ANB’s experience is that often applications are slowed or stalled due to incorrect information being submitted or lag time in getting signatures or other documentation from customer or developers. The DER community should see that a little more work on their part on the front end will lead to quick approval and the sooner they may complete project installation. ANB looks forward to participating in the stakeholder process and answering any questions concerning our comments. NJ BPU Grid Mod Comments 20211116
Arushi Sharma Frank11/15/2021 10:52:44 PMTesla is pioneering in distributed generation technology solutions to accelerate the transition to residential solar and storage.  However, utility interconnection and electric service rules are slow to evolve, requiring proactive collaboration and advocacy from Tesla and other technology manufacturers to facilitate adoption. ?Tesla’s Backup Switch is a compelling example of why interconnection policies need to be streamlined and updated to keep up with the pace of technology change.  ?Tesla Backup Switch is an adapter that fits between the Customer Meter Socket/Panel and the utility Revenue Meter and is certified to the same safety and national electric code requirements as the Revenue Meter itself; this simple, safe alternative to rewiring all circuits in a home for installing PV-Battery systems yields a 10X reduction in installation time, and savings in labor and materials cost which Tesla can pass on to the customer immediately in a discount. ?Several other adapter devices similar to the Backup Switch are being developed and installed around the country for use between the meter panel and utility Revenue Meter.  Examples are provided in this submission including ConnectDER, SolarLink, EZ-Connect, Generlink. The NJ BPU Final Report should include direction to EDCS to develop a transparent and consistent pathway to approve DG devices like the Backup Switch, including methodical and efficient technical, field, and legal reviews necessary to resolve interconnection barriers (which may be in installation or electric service rules).  ?This can include significant actions from EDCs which will accelerate interconnection reform for new technologies that are shaping the present and the future: regulatory sandboxes and pilots with capped project numbers so EDCs can learn from field installations, memoranda of understanding with technology manufacturers intended to address legal, field, and technical questions to support pilots, collaborations and in-person demos with manufacturers and other EDCs that are undertaking similar reviews, and more generally, changes to electric service rules that present barriers to such technology solutions. A success story for replication in New Jersey is Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative’s approval of the Backup Switch to support rapid installation of Solar and Storage in new homes being built in Austin’s Easton Park smart homes development. This submission includes additional references to EDC partnerships Tesla has entered into for the purpose of proactive review and approval of Backup Switch.

Leslie Elder10/26/2021 12:58:19 PM The Coalition for Community Solar Access (CCSA) thanks the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) and the Staff for facilitating a stakeholder process for the critical topics of grid modernization and interconnection rules. CCSA is a national trade association representing over 100 community solar industry leaders and over 30 members actively participating in the community solar pilot program in New Jersey. We also represent members eager to participate in the dual use pilot program. CCSA strongly supports establishing a long term vision for grid modernization and interconnection that is anchored in the energy master plan. A long term vision is essential to ensure the runways provided in the Solar Act of 2021 are realized. The ability to connect renewable assets to the grid in an efficient and economical manner is a win-win for the customer and the climate. CCSA is elated by the convening of this stakeholder group and would strongly advocate for an ongoing workgroup to continue past the conclusion of this docket in May of next year. Many parallel stakeholder processes are needed to make these changes in a comprehensive manner. It is important that all stakeholders that have an interest in participating are provided with the opportunity to do so, and that staff is properly resourced to ensure accessibility for all interested parties. CCSA recommends monthly meetings at a minimum and more frequent meetings if there are pressing issues to be addressed between interested parties. There are examples of successful workgroups New Jersey can pull from as well as lessons learned from other states. New Jersey utilities rely on different technical standards when studying interconnection applications. This leads to inefficiencies, additional costs, and confusion amongst developers that operate across different utility markets. CCSA recommends consistency in publication and content for hosting capacity maps, pre-applications, and moving towards an accelerated interconnection study process. Interconnection studies must be completed in a timely and economical manner to ensure projects who want to access this option can ensure viability before applying for the community solar program or dual use pilot program. Lastly, CCSA advocates for projects to produce reasonable financial assurance up to a specific cap to ensure projects will be able to complete interconnection once capacity is given to participate in the program. Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with staff and other stakeholders through this process. I am available to answer any questions.  
john Landau10/26/2021 11:19:04 AMHaving listened to the first public work session on 10/26, I am concerned regarding how well this process will capture the needs of residential solar, storage, and EV charging and small commercial projects of similar size. There seem to be many participants representing the needs of large scale projects-- project costs and industry organizations for these high $$$ programs justify professional representation. Lower $ residential projects require very low friction to facilitate high volume and high velocity, with interconnection being one primary element. Who is advocating for this specific category of interconnects and its process requirements? Perhaps the participation of ANJEC or a similar organization should be solicited to represent the needs of municipalities? Municipal permitting and inspection processes will be a gating element, and it will not work if each town creates its own. Towns and installers need process standardization and automation, including interconnection. NREL SolarApp+ enablement should please be evaluated as a key tool to accomplish this. https://solarapp.nrel.gov/ Thank you.
