As detailed in the above documents, SCE proposes specific generation interconnection requirements for the 2014 Energy Storage RFO. The relevant tariffs that govern the generation interconnection process in SCE’s service territory are below:
SCE has developed the following interconnection matrix to assist sellers in understanding the various types of interconnection application processes available when interconnecting in SCE’s service territory and the types of projects each study process is appropriate for. The matrix provides information on eligibility, cost, and applicable tariff, as well as requirements for site control and application milestones. The matrix is intended as a useful guide, but parties should review the relevant tariffs directly for the most complete and recent information. SCE encourages sellers to fully understand the details of the applicable tariffs so they know the steps and timeframe for SCE’s Grid Interconnection and Contract Development group to deliver the required study.
