Distributed Power Generation

Distributed power generation uses smaller, decentralized sources to generate electricity close to the end-user. The traditional transmission and distribution grid uses large sources to power huge numbers of customers, both near and far. Several technologies, including solar, wind, and hydro, form the backbone of most distributed generation systems.
