Connecting to our grid

If you are interested in selling us your excess electricity, we will need to do an assessment to see if the connection is feasible and how it could affect the distribution system. Capacity on the distributed system may be limited due to the characteristics and loading of individual feeders. We can determine the available capacity during our assessment.

In order to size your system, identify your individual emergency or critical load energy requirements. Think about which energy requirements you can reduce through, such as energy-efficient appliances, added insulation, and lighting.

Make sure that your generation sources are installed and operated according to the manufacturer’s specification as well as the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC).

Distributed resource interconnection procedures

If you want to generate up to 10 megawatts (MW) of electricity and interconnect to our distribution system at voltages of 25 kV or less, follow these guidelines:

If you plan to produce excess energy to flow back to us for a credit, you must sign our Power Purchase Agreement.

Generation greater than 10 MW

For generation greater than 10 MW or interconnected to the our grid at voltages greater than 25 kV, refer to Open Access Interconnection Tariff.
