First Solar webinar: Fact vs Myth: Solar power and grid stability
By: Sonia Dunlop, Policy Advisor
First Solar's Dr. Mahesh Morjaria held an insightful webinar for us a few weeks ago, reporting on a whole series of research and experiments the company has been conducting in California and Arizona on how large-scale utility solar can provide grid services with more accuracy than conventional generators.
The main message was that we can be both flexible and useful to the grid - although we of course need a mechanism to be compensated for that. We thoroughly recommend taking an hour to watch the webinar on YouTube here and Mahesh is happy to take any follow up questions you might have too. You can send any questions you may have here.
