CRI Files Comments Regarding DC's Modernizing the Energy Delivery System for Increased Sustainability (MEDSIS)

The District of Columbia Commission launched an effort in 2015 to modernize the distribution energy delivery system for increased sustainability (MEDSIS). Commission Staff issued a report in 2017, identifying potential barriers requiring Commission action and laying out recommendations for the use of the MEDSIS Pilot Project Fund ($21.55M). CRI's filing suggests changes to a few definitions, priorities for the use of MEDSIS fund resources, and identifies additional issues for Commission consideration in order to host high levels of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) on the DC grid.
