Connecting 分布式能源资源 to the Grid
推荐几个网赌网站 Utilities connects 分布式能源资源 to Ontario’s electricity grid. These 分布式能源资源 include solar panels, 热电厂和电厂的结合, 能量储存设施, 以及以天然气为燃料的发电机.
Our 分布式能源资源 group assesses 和 approves the connection to the distribution system.
Connection Process - Small, Mid-Sized 和 Large Embedded Generators (>10kW)
These are the steps that must be followed to connect an electricity generation source that will generate more than 10 kilowatts 和 operate at voltages below 50 kilovolts to 推荐几个网赌网站’s electricity grid. Note that this is subject to change at any time.
在推荐几个网赌网站复习表格B之后, you will need to submit a signed 研究协议 along with payment for the 连接影响评估.
We conduct a 连接影响评估 和 issue a report. You will be allocated capacity on the grid upon completion of the 连接影响评估 by 推荐几个网赌网站 Utilities 和 Hydro One (if applicable).
Note: For generators connecting on a Hydro One shared feeder, Hydro One will be required to perform its own 连接影响评估.
We will provide you with a cost estimate 和 will issue a 连接成本协议 specifying the scope of work to be performed either by you, 你的承包商或阿莱克特拉公用事业公司, 为了使世代连接.
如果你决定继续这个项目, you must sign the 连接成本协议 和 make the required payments.
We will perform the work required to make the connection. You or your contractor must complete the construction of the generation facility 和 then apply to the 电气安全 Authority for an electrical inspection. You must submit final detailed design documents to us for review.
After the 电气安全 Authority provides the electrical inspection “Connection Authorization” directly to 推荐几个网赌网站 Utilities, the generation facility will be connected to 推荐几个网赌网站 Utilities’ distribution system.
We will assist you in setting up the appropriate settlement arrangement based on the project type.
Connection Process - Micro Generators (≤ 10 kW)
These are the steps that must be followed to connect an electricity generation source that will generate less than or equal to kilowatts 和 operate at voltages below 50 kilovolts to 推荐几个网赌网站’s electricity grid. Note that this is subject to change at any time.
推荐几个网赌网站会审查申请, 一旦被接受, issue an 提供连接 which outlines the requirements 和 construction costs to connect the generator.
如果你决定继续这个项目, you will be required to pay the connection fees detailed in the 提供连接.
Once the micro generation facility has been built according to our requirements, you will need to to apply to the 电气安全 Authority for an electrical inspection.
After the 电气安全 Authority provides us with the electrical inspection “Connection Authorization” we will install the bi-directional generation meter.
We will work with you to set up the appropriate settlement arrangement based on the project type.
If you generate electricity from renewable sources, you may take advantage of Ontario’s “net metering” initiative. Net metering allows you to send excess electricity generated from renewable resources to the distribution system for a credit toward your energy costs.
