Our products and services differ based on state. Please select your state (or the state you're interested in) from the list to the left.
Why do our products and services differ based on state? Because our business is regulated by state. We have regulated operations in eight Western and Midwestern states. The different regulatory body for each state we serve determines what products and services we deliver in that state.
Federal Energy Regulator Commission (FERC) provides standards for small generation (less then 20 MW) interconnection for facilities within the jurisdiction of the commission. This generally applies to transmission-level interconnection. Distribution-level interconnection is usually regulated by each state's public utilities commission.
The Xcel Energy interconnection documents comply with the 2003 version of R 460.601-460.656. The link below is to the 2009 version with which all other Michigan utilities must comply. The 2003 version can be found below attached to the Xcel Energy only interconnection requirements document.
Michigan Tariffs relating to distributed generation can be found in the below sections of the Michigan Electric Rate Book.
The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin has established interconnection agreements and applications for generation up to 20kW and between 20kW and 15MW. Guidelines have also been established by the Wisconsin Distributed Resources Collaborative. These guidelines include a detailed description of the application process for interconnection and a process flow chart.
