Distributed Generation Facilities Deliverability Status Assignments Application Process

___________________________________________________

 

Summary

Distributed generation facilities interconnected or seeking interconnection to an investor owned utility participating transmission owner's distribution system must apply for deliverability status assignment by 5:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) June 14, 2013. Facilities interconnected or seeking interconnection to other utility distribution companies and metered subsystems must contact the appropriate entity below. All deliverability assignments are due to the ISO no later than June 28, 2013.

Main Text

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission conditionally accepted the ISO proposed tariff amendment on November 16, 2012 to implement a streamlined annual process for providing resource adequacy deliverability status to distributed generation facilities in grid areas where the ISO annual transmission plan indicated transmission capacity is available. The ISO compliance filing is available on its website at April 15, 2013 Distributed Generation Deliverability Compliance in Docket No. ER12-2643-002.

 

The ISO is working with participating investor owned utilities, utility distribution companies and metered sub-systems to implement the first annual cycle of the process for assigning deliverability status to eligible distributed generation in areas where the transmission capacity is available, as identified in the April 30 ISO assessment report available at: http://www.caiso.com/Documents/2013RevisedDeliverability-DistributedGenerationStudyResults.pdf.

 

Distributed generation facilities at least 10kW in size may apply to receive deliverability status. Additional eligibility requirements are specified in ISO Tariff section 40.4.6.3.2.2. For the 2014 resource adequacy compliance year, those distributed generation facilities that are at least 500 kW in size and are Participating Generators under ISO Tariff Section 4.6 are eligible to provide resource adequacy capacity.

 

For compliance years 2015 and later, the ISO will work with stakeholders to develop the requirements and procedures to enable distributed generation facilities smaller than 500 kW to be eligible to provide resource adequacy capacity. The ISO will announce stakeholder activities to develop these requirements and procedures in a future market notice.

 

Application Processes

 

Investor Owned Utility Participating Transmission Owner Distribution System Interconnection

Pursuant to the compliance filing, distributed generation facilities currently interconnected or seeking interconnection to an investor owned utility participating transmission owner distribution system must apply by 5:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) Friday, June 14,, 2013 for deliverability status assignment. Facility owners should contact the appropriate investor owned utility participating transmission owner, Pacific Gas & Electric Company or Southern California Edison Company, to obtain the necessary application form and eligibility information.

 

Utility Distribution Company or Metered Subsystem Interconnection

Distributed generation facilities interconnected or seeking interconnection to a non-investor owned utility participating transmission owner utility distribution company or metered subsystem distribution system should contact the appropriate entity listed below for information on eligibility and the application process. Although the ISO Tariff does not stipulate a deadline for submitting applications, the utility distribution companies and metered subsystems must report all deliverability status assignments to the ISO no later than June 28, 2013 for inclusion in the ISO net qualifying capacity determination for 2014, subject to the 500 kW size threshold.
