Generator Interconnection Guidelines, Applications, Agreement, and Information Resources

These generator interconnection guidelines outline the process, requirements and agreements for installing or modifying generation projects connected in parallel with the Presque Isle Electric & Gas electric distribution system.

If the member is going to interconnect a generator to the PIE&G utility grid, you need to complete the interconnection application, interconnection agreement and comply with the terms and conditions. Also below is the PIE&G Net Metering Tariff. The intent of this tariff is to allow a small power producer such as a small wind turbine to help offset the electric use of a residential customer and how “NEG” Net Excess Generation is to be credited.

These guidelines comply with the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) rules established in MPSC Order-Case U-13745. * The guidelines protect the safety of utility workers, and ensure safe operation of generators and distributed generation units in conjunction with utility company electric systems.
