    Wholesale Market Transaction (Unit will operate in parallel and participate in PJM or MISO markets pursuant to a PJM Wholesale Market Participation Agreement or MISO equivalent) 

 

    Back-up Generation (Units that temporarily operate in parallel with the electric distribution system for more than 100 milliseconds)

 

Note:   Backup units that do not operate in parallel for more than 100 milliseconds do not need an interconnection agreement.

Requested Procedure Under Which to Evaluate Interconnection Request1

 

Please indicate below which review procedure applies to the interconnection request.  The review procedure used is subject to confirmation by the EDC.

 

  Level 2 – Lab-certified interconnection equipment with an aggregate electric nameplate capacity not exceeding the specifications in Section 466.90(b)(2). Lab-certified is defined in Section 466.30. (Application fee is $100 plus $1.00 per kVA.)

 

  Level 3 – Distributed generation facility does not export power.  Nameplate capacity rating is less than or equal to 50 kW if connecting to area network or less than or equal to 10 MW if connecting to a radial distribution feeder. (Application fee amount is $500 plus $2.00 per kVA.)

 

  Level 4 – Nameplate capacity rating is less than or equal to 10 MVA and the distributed generation facility does not qualify for a Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 review, or the distributed generation facility has been reviewed but not approved under a Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 review.  (Application fee amount is $1,000 plus $2.00 per kVA, to be applied toward any subsequent studies related to this application.)  

 

1 Note:      Descriptions for interconnection review categories do not list all criteria that must be satisfied.  For a complete list of criteria, please refer to 83 Ill. Adm. Code 466, Electric Interconnection of Distributed Generation Facilities.
