New Smart Inverter Requirement (July 26, 2018)
Starting July 26, 2018, the CPUC requires that PG&E only accept applications with UL 1741 SA compliant smart inverters with the default setting for Volt Var set to "reactive power priority" for interconnection requests utilizing inverter technology. For more information about this requirement, visit 319-728-9702. Note: PG&E's interconnection portal will be periodically updated (as needed) to reflect the current list of approved inverters.
Please note NEM2 changes:
After you submit your application, a PG&E representative will contact you to discuss the next steps.
If you are applying to interconnect a NEW solar or wind generator less than 30 kW, please apply to the Standard NEM online interconnection tool.
PG&E recommends preparing all information and materials before starting the application. If the Interconnection Request is missing information or documents, PG&E will accept the application, but will deem it incomplete and provide a written list of deficiencies to the designated representative provided in your request.
Questions concerning PG&E's Online Application process can be directed to the Electric Generation Interconnection Department at email@example.com.
