Distributed Generation Deliverability Assessment Results Posted, Application Process Deadline
The California ISO has posted distributed generation deliverability assessment results for the 2019 cycle. Eligible distributed generation facilities that are seeking an initial or increase in deliverability status must apply for deliverability status assignment as described herein.
The ISO is implementing the 2019 cycle of this process by working with utility distribution companies in assigning deliverability status to eligible distributed generation facilities in grid areas where the ISO distributed generation deliverability assessment indicated capacity is available to support deliverability status assignments pursuant to ISO Tariff Section 184.108.40.206. The ISO posted the distributed generation deliverability assessment results to its Interconnection Study webpage at http://www.caiso.com/planning/Pages/GeneratorInterconnection/InterconnectionStudy/Default.aspx, under the Deliverability for distributed generation - studies and reports heading.

Owners of distributed generation facilities interconnected or applying for interconnection to an investor-owned utility Participating Transmission Owner’s (PTO) distribution system seeking an initial or increase in deliverability status must submit an application by 5 p.m. (Pacific Time) Friday, April 12, 2019. Facility owners should contact the appropriate investor-owned utility PTO, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, Southern California Edison Company, or San Diego Gas & Electric Company, to obtain the necessary application form and eligibility information.
