Section 4 – Application for Interconnection

  1. A standard application form for net metered installations can be found on our website.
  2. When an applicant requests interconnection from the Utility, the applicant will be responsible for conforming to the rules and regulations that are in effect. The applicant seeking to interconnect a generating facility under these rules must fill out and submit a signed application form to the Utility. Information must be accurate, complete, and approved by the Utility; however, approval of the application as complete does not constitute approval to interconnect.
  3. If a project is to be installed in a phased manner, the applicant may choose to submit application for approval of the final project size or may choose to submit applications at each stage of the project. Each application will be evaluated based on the nameplate rating stated on the application.
  4. Application processing charge. The nonrefundable interconnection application processing charge is set by the Utility according to facility size and will be:
    1. Tier 1: 1 to 25 kW $200
    2. Tier 2: 26 to 100 kW $200 + $10  per kW over 25kW (maximum of $950)
  5. Non-Discrimination. All generating facility interconnection applications pursuant to this section will be processed by the Utility in a non-discriminatory manner, consistent with other service requests and in a manner that does not delay other service requests.
  6. Application evaluation. All generating facility interconnection requests pursuant to this section will be reviewed by the Utility for compliance with the rules of this Section. If the Utility in its sole discretion finds that the application does not comply with this Section, the Utility may reject the application. If the Utility rejects the application, it will provide the applicant with written or electronic mail notification stating its reasons for rejecting the application.
