NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULES
Interconnection equipment is all interface equipment, including switchgear,
protective devices, inverters or other interface devices. Interconnection equipment
may be installed as part of an integrated equipment package that includes a
generator or other electric source.
"Interconnection facilities" means facilities and equipment required by the EDC
to accommodate the interconnection of a distributed generation facility.
Collectively, interconnection facilities include all facilities and equipment
between the distributed generation facility's interconnection equipment and the
point of interconnection, including any modifications or additions necessary to
physically and electrically interconnect the distributed generation facility to the
electric distribution system. Interconnection facilities are sole use facilities and do
not include distribution upgrades.
"Interconnection request" means an applicant's request, in a form approved by the
Commission, for interconnection of a new distributed generation facility or to
change the capacity or other operating characteristics of an existing distributed
generation facility already interconnected with the electric distribution system.
"Interconnection study" is any study described in Section 467.70.
"Local electric power system" means facilities that deliver electric power to a load
that is contained entirely within a single premises or group of premises. Local
electric power system has the same meaning as in Section 220.127.116.11 of IEEE
"Nameplate capacity" is the maximum rated output of a generator, prime mover,
or other electric power production equipment under specific conditions designated
by the manufacturer and usually indicated on a nameplate physically attached to
the power production equipment.
"Parallel operation" or "parallel" means a distributed generation facility that is
connected electrically to the electric distribution system for longer than 100
"Point of interconnection" means the point where the distributed generation
facility is electrically connected to the electric distribution system. Point of
interconnection has the same meaning as the term "point of common coupling"
defined in Section 3.1.13 of IEEE Standard 1547.
