AbstractCurrent trend, where customers reduce electric energy consumption, but on the other hand increase peak demand, is challenging from distribution system operator’s (DSO) viewpoint. Meanwhile, alternatives to traditional grid connection are becoming feasible in some cases. Investments in distribution grid infrastructure are significant and expected to have a lifetime of 40–50 years. What happens if customers go off-grid?This paper focuses on studying the risks that possible grid defection customers’ decision to go off-grid would cause for DSO in rural environment. The study shows that risks for DSOs are different in different areas and DSOs can try to affect risk causing customers by changing distribution tariff system.
