Small Generator Interconnection Procedures

Interconnection Procedures

LIPA's Small Generator Interconnection procedures ("SGIP") provides a framework for processing application for interconnection to LIPA's Distribution System for Interconnection of new or modified distributed generation facilities with a nameplate rating 10 MW or less aggregated on the customer side of the point of common coupling (PCC). PSEG Long Island has implemented and maintain a web-based system for SGIP application process.

The process requirements to add a distributed resource to our system is to ensure the addition has no adverse impacts on safety, reliability and power quality. It begins with the planning and application stage, continues through the installation of equipment and completes with inspections, testing and signoff. Generation neither designed to operate, nor operating, in parallel with our electrical system is not subject to these requirements.

All equipment must meet the testing and certification requirements of New York State. A listing of this equipment can be found on the New York Public Service Commission's website.
