Distributed generation is the ability to generate on-premise energy at the point of consumption that can also be fed back into the distribution grid.  Generating power on-premise, rather than centrally, provides more control to the consumer, but also create added complexities to utilities and T&D companies to manage those distributed generation.

The Smart Grid gives utilities and grid operators more control and visibility to integrate distributed generation, which eventually result in a cleaner, reliable energy.

Typical examples of distributed generation include:

  • solar panels on the roofs of homes and buildings
  • small wind turbines
  • electric vehicles

With net metering, producers of distributed energy will have the ability to deduct their energy outflows from metered energy inflows.
