In this section you will find information pertaining to the safe interconnection of generators to the CL&P electric distribution system and information on net metering(PDF). Generators include photovoltaic arrays (solar panels), mini-turbines, wind turbines, cogeneration units and micro turbines, to name a few. Interconnection occurs whenever your generating equipment (including inverters and batteries) is simultaneously connected to your electrical system and to CL&P’s electric distribution system.
See Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
|Certified Inverter: projects 10 kW and less||Guidelines (PDF)||$100|
|Fast Track: projects up to 2 MW||Guidelines (PDF)||$500|
|Study Process: complex projects over 2 MW||Guidelines (PDF)||$1,000|
Please read the guidelines (above) and technical requirements (PDF) to understand how your generating system needs to be installed to meet federal, state and local electrical codes.
NOTE: All work must comply with the CL&P Information and Requirements Book (PDF)
