ConnectDER, the innovative company that enables utilities and homeowners to expand access to distributed energy resources, has received a patent for innovations to their ‘plug and play’ solutions for distributed energy resources.

The patent is for a reinvention of the standard utility power meter; one that combines the ubiquitous metering and communications of a “Smart meter” with a plug and socket interface for solar power, electric vehicles, and energy storage systems.

The new meter will benefit homeowners and utilities alike by cutting installation costs, providing seamless communication between the DER and the grid operator, and ensuring DERs are metered and compensated accurately for their contribution to grid stability – allowing for significantly more clean energy on the grid.
