  Tell the CPUC to support WDG interconnection

Rule 21 Interconnection Discussion Forum: 25 June 2019, 1:45pm PT

At the quarterly meeting of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Rule 21 Interconnection Discussion Forum, this topic was discussed: Utilities commonly require wholesale systems interconnecting under Rule 21 to install separate interconnection facilities when existing facilities serving on-site load may have sufficient capacity. Is the requirement to install separate facilities necessary to support safe and reliable interconnection? If not, how should the Commission address this utility practice?
