Solar generation is accommodated by coal, natural gas, and hydroelectric changes. Constraints to increasing solar are mitigated when possible through curtailment. 22 GW and 28,843 GWh of solar can be accommodated without the need for curtailment. Existing technology can accommodate solar oﬀsetting up to 13.7% of generation. ARTICLE I NFO ABSTRACT Keywords: This paper presents a model for estimating the amount of distributed generation solar photovoltaics (DGPV) that Solar photovoltaic (PV) can be accommodated by an electrical system, limited by the ability of existing generation infrastructure to Distributed generation change output. The model is applied to a region of seven states in the U.S. Midwest,
