ACEEE Comments on Federal Electricity Policy

Regulatory Filing


ACEEE is pleased to comment on the proposed rule for standardizing generator interconnection agreements and procedures issued April 24, 2002. We commented on the ANOPR earlier this year, and wish to expand on those comments. We strongly support the Commission’s effort to standardize the rules and procedures for interconnection, which is a crucial nexus in accelerating the use of advanced, high-efficiency technology such as CHP. We believe these procedures are especially vital for small generators (smaller than 20 Megawatts), for whom the costs in time and money for interconnection can prove fatal to the success of many projects.
