Generation Interconnection

Developers desiring to develop distributed generation facilities within the City of Anaheim’s service territory and interconnect with Anaheim’s electric system should review and comply with Rule 22 of Anaheim’s Rules, Rates and Regulations and Generation Interconnection Standards and Guidelines
Distributed generation is generally defined as generating resources whose combined gross output is less than 20 megawatts (MW). Most distributed generation includes:
  • Combined heat and power (CHP)
  • Fuel cells
  • Micro turbines
  • Reciprocating engines
  • Small turbines
  • Solar photovoltaics
The first step in the process is filing out an Interconnection Application.
