Europe and Eurasia: Moldova

Partnership Exchange on Renewables and Consumer Issues

Date: November 2012
Location: Jefferson City, Missouri

With the support of the US Agency for International Development, NARUC implemented a partnership exchange between the National Energy Regulatory Agency of Moldova (ANRE) and the Missouri Public Service Commission on renewables, consumer service, consumer education, information systems and communication issues.

Participants discussed in detail issues of curtailment and compensations for renewable generators, the queue management process, interconnection agreements and net metering. Discussions were also held on how the regulator interacts effectively with customers and how to motivate the utilities to respond quickly to complaints and to  respect consumer rights.
