What is Distributed Generation?

Distributed Generation (DG) employs small-scale technologies to produce electricity close to the end users. DG technologies offer a number of potential benefits, including high-power reliability, the opportunity to sell energy back to the grid for revenue, lower cost for electricity and more. DG technologies can provide power in capacities that range from a fraction of a kilowatt [kW] to about 100 megawatts [MW].
