  • Small and large generator interconnection procedures
    The small generator interconnection procedures established the requirements for generators no larger than 20 megawatts to interconnect to the California ISO controlled grid. FERC’s Order No. 2006 issued May 12, 2006 required the ISO to standardize the terms and conditions of open-access interconnection service. The ISO recently experienced a significant increase in the number of small generation projects seeking interconnection. This increase revealed issues with the small generator interconnection procedures. The ISO initiated a stakeholder process to address these issues and revise the small generator interconnection procedures. In discussions to revise the procedures, the potential solutions highlighted impacts to the large generator interconnection procedures. The small and large generator interconnection procedures have interdependencies, such that any solution to one procedure impacts the other.

    • Outcome
      On December 16, 2010, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission conditionally approved tariff provisions to the generator interconnection process that combined the small and large interconnection processes into a single cluster approach and streamlined the study timelines. — FERC Order: Dec. 16, 2010; Board of Governors decision: Sept. 9, 2010
