Interconnection Checklist

Questions to Consider

Want to simplify the review of your interconnection application? Please take a few minutes to consider the following:

  1. Is your generating equipment (either by itself or as part of a group of generators) larger than 20 megawatts? Please contact your local utility.
  2. Is your generating equipment 25 kW or less with a certified inverter? Ask your local utility company for the Short Application Form. For everything else, ask for the Standard Application Form.
  3. Do you want to use your generating equipment for net metering? Certain restrictions may apply. Under Ohio law, net metering is a customer billing arrangement, not a sale of electricity to the customer’s electric utility or retail electricity supplier. To qualify for net metering, the owner’s generating equipment must be installed primarily for the owner’s own use.
