The final step in connecting your solar modules to the grid is to send a connection request that your solar installer will often make on your behalf. The NJBPU requires customer generators to have interconnection agreements with their CDE. These agreements govern the connection to the electricity grid and define the conditions, technical requirements and safety and verification requirements. For each of the BPU-regulated electricity providers, contact information and website pages specific to service programs are available with forms (links directly to the “Utility Company Connection Forms” page). If you are late to respond to a response from your EDC and would like to file a specific claim regarding the interconnection of your project, please visit the LogIn Claim page. The rules for measuring connections and networks are designed to motivate customers to invest in renewable energy sources on their land, ensuring that customer generators are compensated for the energy they produce. They are an important incentive for customers to contribute to the availability of safe, reliable and affordable electricity and to help protect our environment in New Jersey.

If your system is less than 10 kW in size, you enter the Level 1 category.

If your system produces more than 10kW, you will fall to level 2. In special cases where you need special equipment to connect to the network, you may fall to level 3. Once you determine the size of your system, you can apply with your application fee (which can be found in the table below). All NJBPU-regulated electricity suppliers (PSE-G, JCP-L, Atlantic City Electric and Rockland Electric), as well as electricity suppliers or suppliers, must provide net meters to individuals who generate electricity using renewable systems. In order to benefit from the net measure, a system`s generating capacity must not exceed the customer`s annual electricity requirements. Interconnection rules are mainly intended for customer generators eligible for the net meter. The rules include three levels of verification that depend on the size of the alternator and other criteria. At the time of interconnection, CRCs require sufficient load to justify installed capacity. Please click on the link below to file a specific complaint about networking your project. Together, New Jersey`s interconnection rules, as well as grid measurement rules, ensure that customers are compensated with renewable energy systems or generators for the clean, renewable energy they produce.

When a renewable energy system produces more electricity than the customer actually consumes, the customer is compensated with credits at the full value of electricity for production that goes beyond what he consumes. For example, a customer equipped with a solar system may consume less electricity at moderate temperatures than he actually produces on a typical sunny day. When electricity generation exceeds consumption, the electricity meter turns upside down and provides credit to the customer for the excess energy generated.
