Utah Interconnection rules became effective April 30, 2010. No changes were made after the previous January 1, 2010 version of the rule was posted for public comment.
The final rule specifies the application procedures, technical requirements, evaluations, inspections and maintenance requirements, fees and time lines which pertain to interconnection of facilities to public utilities. Most notably these rules modify the existing rules by:
- Limiting study fees to within 125% of the utility’s non-binding good faith estimate for such study
- Allowing the customer and utility to mutually agree to terms other than those specified in the standard form interconnection agreement, but these terms are subject to commission approval
- Limiting spot network interconnections to 5% of a spot network’s maximum load or 50 kilowatts.
