Interconnecting Generation under Rule 21

Electric Rule 21 describes the interconnection, operating and metering requirements for generation facilities to be connected to a utility’s distribution system, over which the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has jurisdiction. Each of California’s large investor owned utilities (IOUs) has its own Rule 21 tariff as part of its electric rules; however, they are largely equal in content. For the latest news and regulatory developments on Rule 21, please visit the CPUC Rule 21.

The remaining information on this page serves as a reference for SCE’s Rule 21. The guidelines in this section are provided with the intent to help customers understand SCE’s interconnection procedures under Rule 21. However, in the case of discrepancies between the content of this page and SCE’s Rule 21, the currently approved Rule 21 will prevail.

Note that the currently posted Rule 21 at SCE.com may not reflect updates to the tariff that may be pending before the CPUC.

Pursuant to the CPUC resolution E-4920 and E-4898 dated April 26, 2018, new interconnection requests will require UL-1741 SA certification with reactive power priority for smart inverters effective July 25, 2018. In addition, smart inverters must have the capability to perform Phase 3 Advanced Functions 5 & 6 effective February 22, 2019. It is the responsibility of the customer/installer/contractor to purchase equipment which meets all requirements including the new requirements adopted in E-4920 and E-4898. For more information, the California Energy Commission (CEC) has a website dedicated to the Rule 21 Smart Inverter Working Group or you may send an email to InterconnectionQA@sce.com

SCE customers that operate generation systems for customer’s use only and do not export power for sales to SCE’s electric grid are referred to as “non-export” (or “non-exporting”) generators. Non-export projects include all generating facilities to be operated by, or for, a customer to serve part or all of its electric energy requirements that would otherwise be provided by SCE, including “distributed generation”, “cogeneration”, emergency, backup, and standby generation.

Backup Systems

“Backup systems” are non-exporting generators used by customers to serve part or all of their electrical needs during a power outage. These generators will normally be operated only when SCE’s electric service is not available or in an emergency situation.

Please visit our Backup Systems page for more information about the various types of backup systems and the process to obtain interconnection.

While customers operating backup systems under either momentary parallel or isolated mode are not obligated to enter into an interconnection agreement with SCE, an application for interconnection still needs to be completed to satisfy SCE’s notice requirements for operating such generating facility as per California Health and Safety Code Section 119085 (b).

Inadvertent Export

Certain non-exporting systems are optimally sized to meet the customers’ peak demand. These systems have generator controls to ensure export of electrical power to SCE’s electric system is minimized. When load changes rapidly and the generator cannot ramp down quickly enough, the facility may need to export small amounts of power for a limited duration. The event of exporting uncompensated power for a duration exceeding two seconds but less than 60 seconds is referred to as Inadvertent Export. Please refer to Section M of Rule 21 regarding technical requirements regarding Inadvertent Export.

Generally speaking, “exporting projects” are those generating systems that are designed for the purpose of supplying unused power into SCE’s electric system for sale to SCE, a third party, or the market, or for delivery to another eligible customer or authorized entity.

Eligibility of Exporting Projects for Interconnection Under Rule 21

Exporting projects can only request interconnection service under Rule 21 if they intend to participate in an eligible energy program approved and under the jurisdiction of the CPUC (e.g., Schedule NEM, Schedule RES-BCT, or an eligible procurement program where 100% of the exported power is sold to SCE). For information about the procurement programs that qualify for interconnection under Rule 21, please refer to SCE’s Energy Procurement site.

Sales to 3rd Parties. If the project developer is intending to sell any portion of the exported energy or any capacity services from the project to a 3rd party (any entity other than SCE, including other utilities), or in the market, then the interconnection service must be obtained under a FERC jurisdictional tariff (such as SCE’s WDAT, or the CAISO tariff, depending on applicability).

Application for Interconnection

For information regarding the request for interconnection for new Net-Energy Metering projects, please visit the NEM Homepage.

New non-NEM exporting generation projects seeking interconnection service under Rule 21 (including projects intending to participate in the Schedule RES-BCT) are required to submit an application form (Rule 21 Exporting Generator Interconnection RequestForm 14-918). The following contains a link to the application, with instructions on how to remit the applicable fee, and a list of documents required to be submitted with your application package:

  • Application form: Rule 21 Exporting Generator Interconnection RequestForm 14-918
  • A single-line drawing
  • Site/plot plan drawing
  • Proof of Site Exclusivity
  • Diagrams, manufacturer’s data, and written descriptions of the generating facilities
  • Interconnection request fees. The application review requires a non-refundable fee of $800. Instructions on how to make this payment are included in the application form available at the link above

Distribution Service

In addition, projects connecting to SCE’s distribution system through Rule 21 are required to obtain “Distribution Service” with SCE. “Distribution Service” allows the customer to be able to use SCE’s distribution system to “transport” their energy from the point of interconnection with SCE’s electric system to the CAISO system (where most power sales are expected to be delivered and settled in accordance with the CAISO market rules).

For guidelines on providing documentation of Site Exclusivity, please review this Site Exclusivity Guidelines.

Prior to obtaining interconnection, SCE performs technical reviews to identify how the project can be interconnected to SCE’s electric system in a safe and reliable manner while complying with all applicable standards and regulations. Under Rule 21, the technical review of projects requesting interconnection service can be done under the Fast Track Process or the Detailed Study Process. For information about these two tracks, please read the sections Fast Track Process under Rule 21 or the Detailed Study Processes under Rule 21 below.

When completing the application form, the customer can select, based on eligibility, the preferred track for reviewing the project.

Note: Non-exporting projects operating in parallel with SCE’s electric system (using application form 14-732) are evaluated only under the Fast Track Process. Only exporting projects (using application form 14-918) can select, based on eligibility, their desired review track.

Expose as Block
No

The Fast Track Process is intended for projects that can be interconnected without system upgrades: it allows for a faster review of an interconnection request against a set of predefined screens to determine whether the project can interconnect without the need for detailed engineering studies or significant upgrades to SCE’s electric system.

The Fast Track review consists of an Initial Review and, if needed, a Supplemental Review. The Initial Review involves the evaluation of Screens A through M (described in Section G.1 of Rule 21).

The need for Supplemental Review will be determined based on the results of the Initial Review screens. Projects that successfully pass Initial Review screens will be allowed to interconnect without a Supplemental Review.

If needed, SCE can perform a Supplemental Review, which requires an additional nonrefundable fee of $2,500. The Supplemental Review consists of the application of Screens N through P (described in Section G.2 of Rule 21).

Projects that pass the Supplemental Review will be allowed to interconnect without further engineering studies. Failure to pass Fast Track evaluation (after the Initial Review and the Supplemental Review have been performed) means that the project needs further review (or study) before it can interconnect to SCE’s electric system. It does not mean that the project cannot be interconnected.

Fast Track Eligibility. Projects need to be “eligible” for the Fast Track review before the Initial Review and the Supplemental review are performed. Eligibility to request a Fast Track review means that the project can be evaluated under the Initial Review and the Supplemental Review screens, but eligibility does not guarantee that the project passes Fast Track.

Non-Exporting projects (using application form 14-732) and Net Energy Metered projects (using application form 14-957) are eligible for Fast Track evaluation regardless of the gross nameplate rating of the proposed generating facility. Exporting projects (using application form 14-918) with a net exporting capacity no larger than 3.0 MWs on a 12 kV, 16 kV or 33 kV are also eligible for Fast Track evaluation.

Typical Timelines for Fast Track Review Process.The Initial Review is normally completed within fifteen (15) business days after the application package is deemed complete and valid.

  • Activities following Initial Review analysis:
    • If the project passes the Initial Review screens, and there are no identified upgrades required for interconnection, SCE will deliver a draft interconnection agreement within fifteen (15) business days following the Initial Review results.
    • If the project passes the Initial Review screens, but there are identified upgrades required for interconnection, SCE will deliver a cost estimate of such upgrades within fifteen (15) business days following the Initial Review results.
    • If the project does not pass the Initial Review screens, SCE may hold a meeting with the customer to determine the next steps and recommended options for the project, which may include conducting a Supplemental Review or moving the project to the Detailed Study Process.

If SCE and the customer agree to perform a Supplemental Review, the review is normally completed within twenty (20) business days after receipt of supplemental review fee.

  • Activities following Supplemental Review analysis:
    • If the project passes the Supplemental Review screens, and there are no identified upgrades required for interconnection, SCE will deliver a draft interconnection agreement within fifteen (15) business days of providing the Supplemental Review results.
    • If the project passes the Supplemental Review screens, but there are identified upgrades required for interconnection, SCE will deliver a cost estimate of such upgrades within fifteen (15) business days following the Supplemental Review results.
    • If the project does not pass the Supplemental Review screens, SCE may hold a meeting with the customer to determine the next steps and recommended options for the project, which may include moving the project to the Detailed Study Process. Please review the Detailed Study Processes under Rule 21 section below for more information.

Interconnection Agreement. Following the receipt of a cost estimate for new facilities identified during the Initial Review or the Supplemental Review, the customer can request a Generator Interconnection Agreement within fifteen (15) business days. SCE will deliver a draft interconnection agreement within fifteen (15) business days of the customer’s request. At that point, SCE and the customer begin negotiations under the timelines provided in Section F.2.e of Rule 21.

Notes About Deliverability. All projects reviewed under the Fast Track Process are considered Energy Only (also referred to as Energy Only Deliverability Status, or EO). Energy Only projects do not qualify to provide Resource Adequacy benefits to Load Serving Entities (“Resource Adequacy” and “Load Serving Entities” are terms defined by the California Public Utilities Commission).

Projects that are not eligible for Fast Track evaluation, or that failed the Fast Track Process, can apply for a Detailed Study. A detailed study is an engineering study of a project that evaluates its impact to SCE’s electric system and identifies the facilities that are needed to accommodate the interconnection of the project.

There are three types of Detailed Studies: an Independent Study, a Distribution Group Study, and a Transmission Cluster Study. The specific Detailed Study applicable for a project is determined by Screen Q (which identifies if the project is electrically independent from other projects in the transmission system) and Screen R (which identifies if the project is electrically independent from other projects in SCE’s distribution system). Refer to Section G.3 of Rule 21 for a description and applicability of Screens Q and R.

  • For full transparency related to the evaluation of Screen Q, refer to the Rule 21 Screen Q Engineering Review Guidelines.
  • If the project passes both Screen Q and Screen R, the project can proceed to the Independent Study Process (refer to section F.3.b of Rule 21 for a description of this process)
  • If the projects passes Screen Q, but fails Screen R, the project can proceed to the Distribution Group Study Process (refer to section F.3.c of Rule 21 for a description of this process)
  • If the project fails screen Q, the project is required to withdraw its application from the Rule 21 Process and proceed to the Transmission Cluster Study Process (refer to section F.3.d of Rule 21 for a description of this process). The project with then be processed for interconnection under SCE’s WDAT (please visit our WDAT page for more information).

Normally, for projects seeking to be evaluated under the Independent Study Process, SCE provides the results of the evaluation of Screens Q and R within twenty (20) business days following validation of an interconnection request and receipt of the appropriate study deposit set forth in Section E.3.a. For projects seeking to be evaluated under the Distribution Group Study Process, SCE provides the results of the evaluation of Screens Q and R within twenty (20) business days following the close of the Distribution Group Study application window.
