IEEE 1547 (Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Generation with Power Systems) underwent changes in 2018. Come hear about these changes and some of the lessons learned in applying this standard.

Certificates for CEU’s and PDH’s now require a fee from IEEE. Therefore this event will be $10 for each attendee requiring a Certificate. Number of CEUs/PDHs will be awarded per length of course. This meeting is free for all attendees not requiring a CEU/PDH Certificate.
