What is Distributed Generation?

Distributed Generation (DG) is any small scale generator that is located at or near the point of end use. DG may or may not be connected to TVEC’s distribution system. The most common types of DG in Texas are wind and photovoltaics(PV). Photovoltaics is a method of generating electrical power by converting solar radiation into direct current electricity. The information contained within these pages will provide you with a greater knowledge of DG options and the requirements for interconnecting a DG source to TVEC’s distribution system. To submit a DG application or for more information contact TVEC Member Services at 800-766-9576 or email energymanagement@tvec.coop .
