GridSolar Smart Grid Coordinator Petition


Synapse assisted the State of Maine Office of the Public Advocate in reviewing a petition filed by GridSolar. The petition has three key proposals: 1) the Smart Grid Coordinator should provide nine services that fall into two broad groups (NTA-related services and Customer-facing services), 2) the Smart Grid Coordinator should be established as a single, state-wide regulated utility, and 3) GridSolar should be selected as that Smart Grid Coordinator. Synapse developed testimony that addressed whether it is in the public interest to have a single, state-wide, third-party Smart Grid Coordinator established as a regulated utility and whether it is in the best interest of the public to select GridSolar to be that Smart Grid Coordinator.
