Interconnection Contracting Process

Qualifying Facility Interconnection Contracting Process

The contracting process is dependent upon the size, location, and sale of the qualifying facility's output.  

Generally, the size of the QF determines whether the interconnection is to Georgia Power’s Distribution System or Transmission System. 

The location of the QF determines whether the interconnection is with Georgia Power or an ITS Participant. 

The sale of the QF output determines whether the Georgia Power State-Jurisdictional Interconnection Procedures or the FERC-Jurisdictional Interconnection Procedures apply.

Which Procedures Apply?

State-Jurisdictional Transmission System Interconnection Procedures (Transmission Interconnection Procedures*)

Apply if the QF is to interconnect to Georgia Power’s Transmission System and is selling its output only to Georgia Power pursuant to PURPA.

State-Jurisdictional Distribution System Interconnection Procedures (Distribution Interconnection Procedures**)

Apply if the QF is to interconnect to Georgia Power’s Distribution System and is selling its output only to Georgia Power pursuant to PURPA.

FERC-Jurisdictional Interconnection Procedures

Apply if the QF is to interconnect to Georgia Power’s Transmission System and is selling partial output to Georgia Power pursuant to PURPA and selling partial output to another utility in interstate commerce (see Southern Companies’ Open Access Same-Time Information System (“OASIS”)).

 

Procedures for Connecting to an ITS Participant

If the QF is interconnecting to an ITS Participant on Transmission, and intending to sell its output to Georgia Power pursuant to PURPA, Generator must contact the ITS Participant directly to commence the appropriate interconnection study process and to obtain the appropriate interconnection agreement with the ITS Participant.
