An LGIP Interconnection Request begins with the submittal of an Interconnection Request in the appropriate form, Appendix 1
to the LGIP.
An initial deposit of $10,000 is mandated; and an additional deposit of $10,000 is required unless the request is accompanied by a demonstration of Site Control
. Note that in certain circumstances, delaying the submittal of Site Control documentation may result in these two deposits being non-refundable: section 3.3.1
of the LGIP sets forth the terms. See Payment and Remittance Instructions
Signed Interconnection Requests may be scanned and submitted as email attachments to Interconnection@bpa.gov
; the originals must arrive within 5 business days. Please cc your Transmission Account Executive and the LGIP Administrator on email submittals.You may also submit Requests by Fax or overnight, see the Business Practice
Once the Request has been reviewed for completeness and validity, a Scoping Meeting will be scheduled. This begins the process of studying the feasibility and scope of the interconnection.
