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 North Dakota state interconnection rules as adopted by the North Dakota Public Service Commission are report in rules 69-09-02, 69-09-07, and 69-09-08.
North Dakota Tariffs relating to distributed generation can be found in Section 9, Cogeneration and Small Power Production, of the North Dakota Electric Rate Book. Tariffs relating to Standby Rates can be found in Section 5-82, Standby Service Rider.
A detailed description of the interconnection process can be found in the document, Distributed Generation Interconnection Manual, below. The manual also includes an interconnection process flow chart, interconnection application and agreement, an engineering data submittal form, and interconnection requirements.
