Interconnected customers are required to comply with all relevant national standards, including those established by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and the National Electrical Safety Code (NEC). Utilities are not allowed to require additional tests or additional liability insurance for customers if safety standards and other requirements are met. There is no provision in Georgia's interconnection standards requiring customers to install a manual external disconnect device.
CHP Eligibility RequirementsOnly fuel cell systems are eligible for the standardized interconnection process.
Eligible Project Size (MW)Standardized interconnection applies to residential systems up to 10 kW and non-residential systems up to 100 kW.
