DCPSC's MEDSIS Initiative Featured in the May Issue of Public Utilities Fortnightly

Public Utility Fortnightly Magazine features the DCPSC in its May 2019 issue. The article highlights the DCPSC’s grid modernization effort, MEDSIS or Modernizing the Energy Delivery System for Increased Sustainability.

MEDSIS is the DCPSC’s comprehensive  initiative to foster regulatory and technology innovation, with the goal of accelerating the District’s transition to a smart, modern, customer-centric, and clean energy system.  

The Commission formed six MEDSIS working groups which include: Pilot Projects, Non-Wire Alternatives, Data and Information Access and Alignment, Microgrids, Rate Design, and Customer Impact. There has been active and robust participation in the working group process, which includes over 217 unique participants from government agencies, industry and trade organizations, distributed energy resource and renewable energy solution providers, consumer and environmental advocacy groups, energy suppliers, and utilities. The members of these working groups have met regularly over the past eight months and have formulated various recommendations that they plan to submit to the Commission for consideration in June to move grid modernization forward in the District.
