Connecting to the grid? We support independent power producers (IPPs), independent system operators (ISOs), regional transmission organizations (RTOs), and electric utilities navigate the interconnection process and model, calculate and analyze the impacts.
Our support is grounded in understanding the following key elements.
Electric utility needs, regulatory expectations and utility customer requirements
Decades of collaborative experience means we’re able to approach each project with the knowledge of what utilities require.
Developer needs, drivers and expectations
Consideration of utility and non-utility factors, help deliver cost-effective projects including common issues and optimization of schedules.
Electric utility designs
We design utility grade interfaces that fulfill developer needs while meeting the interconnection requirements of the utility.
Having worked alongside developers, utilities, ISOs/RTOs, vendors and other organizations, we’re able to collaborate with all parties involved to help each representative navigate the interconnection process to successfully bring assets online.
Interconnection Support Services
Our interconnection support is performed with the intent to help developers move their projects forward:
Facilitate developers to navigate and understand the process for renewable projects
Analysis of interconnection options against budget, land rights, environmental issues, design impacts and stakeholder interests
Feasibility analysis studies and cost estimates
Conceptual drawing development
Review and interpretation of interconnection study and system impact study results for developers
Representation of the owner’s interest in relevant studies
We team up with ISOs and RTOs to:
Scope out studies
Develop effective applications based on an in-depth knowledge of internal processes
Populate applications with relevant data
Develop and interpret reports.
