Distribution grids are changing their characteristics by improving their technical and economic aspects by including distributed generation (DG) elements, taking advantage of energy provided by the wind or the sun. These changes also provide a better quality of life, and a continuous supply of electricity to the groups involved. This article identifies the new socioeconomic dilemmas that arise after implementing a technology that is not contemplated within the Ecuadorian regulatory framework to interconnect to the electricity grid, to solve these problems we will base ourselves on technical concepts, raising the key fundamentals to promote distributed generation using renewable energy. After citing all the components that make distributed generation possible, the aim is to analyze the benefits and setbacks of DGs, as well as the environmental impact by issuing sustained critical knowledge, concluding that distributed generation offers economic, social and electrical advantages.
