This page provides information on submitting a Small Generator Interconnection Request. The Small Generator Interconnection Business Practice describes the complete process.
A Small Generator is a generator, or an aggregation of generators, whose single or combined generating capacity is greater than 0.2 MW and equal to or less than 20 MW.
The interconnection of Small Generating Facilities to the Federal Columbia River Transmission System (FCRTS) is governed by Attachment N
to BPA's Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT
). Please also refer to the chapter entitled "Data Requirements for System Operation and Scheduling" of the Technical Requirements for Interconnection
Should a Small Generator wish to interconnect under Network Resource Interconnection Service, any such request will be studied under the Large Generator Interconnection Procedures.
The SGIP provides the procedural framework for moving from a submitted Request to a completed interconnection for generators 20 MW or less (nameplate). BPA's Small Generator Interconnection Business Practice
provides greater practical detail and should be consulted for specific questions. For any other questions, please contact the appropriate Transmission Account Executive, or the SGIP Administrator
