Distributed Generation in Policy Forums
Synapse assisted MassEnergy in its response to a Request for Information from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative concerning distributed generation. The Renewable Trust, part of the MTC, issued a Request for Information which asked what role DG might play in alleviating transmission congestion in Massachusetts. MassEnergy submitted detailed comments in response to the RFI. Following this work, Synapse worked with Mass Energy Consumers Alliance, the Conservation Law Foundation, the Union of Concerned Scientists, and others to draft initial and reply comments in default service and distributed generation proceedings at the Massachusetts Department of Telecommunications and Energy. Synapse staff were the primary drafters of the comments and also played a significant role in coordinating the responses and positions of the group. Project completed in August 2002.
