Initiating a Request for an Interconnection Agreement

In North Carolina, permission is required to interconnect a parallel generator to Dominion Energy’s electric grid. For more detailed information, view our Parallel Generation and Interconnection or contact:

Generator Interconnections
Dominion Energy Virginia and/or Dominion Energy North Carolina
One James River Plaza, 18th Floor
P.O. Box 26666
Richmond, Virginia 23261-6666

NOTE: The submission of an interconnection request does not constitute an indication of a Seller’s commitment to sell the output of a facility to Dominion Energy. For information on submitting a legally enforceable obligation (LEO) form or requesting a power purchase agreement (PPA), please see the information and links provided below.

Note: The following information applies to Qualifying Facilities or “QFs” (as that term is defined by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission or “FERC”) that establish an LEO (discussed below) on or after November 1, 2018, the date of the Company’s current avoided cost filing in NCUC Docket No. E-100, Sub 158.

A. Contracting to Sell Power to Dominion Energy North Carolina from QFs With Net Output No Greater Than 1 MW

The following information applies to owners of QF located in North Carolina with a capacity of no more than 1 MW ac that meet the applicability and availability criteria of Dominion Energy’s Schedule 19 – FP or Schedule 19 – LMP as currently filed with or subsequently approved by the North Carolina Utilities Commission (“NCUC”).

A QF must establish a legally enforceable obligation or “LEO” in order to enter into a power purchase agreement or “PPA” with Dominion Energy, either at the standard rates contained in Dominion Energy’s current Schedule 19 – FP and Schedule 19 – LMP (or, for QFs with capacity between 1 and 20 MW, at negotiated avoided cost rates - see section B below). A legally enforceable obligation is established under this Section A when a facility that is a QF (a) submits a report of proposed construction to the NCUC pursuant to NCUC Rule R8-65, (b) submits a request to interconnect with the Company’s system pursuant to Section 2 or Section 3 of the North Carolina Interconnection Procedures (“NCIP”), and (c) makes a commitment to sell its output to the Company under standard avoided cost rates by completing and submitting to the Company the ‘Notice of Commitment’ form titled ‘NOTICE OF COMMITMENT TO SELL THE OUTPUT OF A QUALIFYING FACILITY OF NO GREATER THAN 1 MEGAWATT MAXIMUM CAPACITY TO DOMINION ENERGY NORTH CAROLINA.’ With the Notice of Commitment form, the facility will certify that it has met all of the requirements for establishing an LEO. Please follow the instructions on the form itself for completing the form and forwarding it to the Company.
