SUGAR™ for Utilities and Grid Operators

Now You Can
Fast-Track Grid Studies

The Challenge

You have one of the most critical jobs in the world and overseeing the interconnection of large renewable and storage plants is only one of your responsibilities.

2+ Terawatts of
Queued Projects

More than 2 Terawatts (TW) of proposed projects were waiting in interconnection queues at the end of 2022 to power more than 145 million customers nationwide.

Pearl Street’s software solutions can help expedite interconnection and other grid planning studies to address increasing queue volumes.

The solution
