We support renewable energy and partner with our customers to ensure safe
and reliable interconnection of renewable energy into the electric grid.
Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 20.50.09 defines the small generator interconnections
application process Pepco follows. Small generator technologies that qualify
for interconnection with our system include solar (photovoltaic or “PV”),
rooftop solar, wind, biomass, fuel cells, qualifying closed circuit
hydro-electric, and micro-combined heat and power.
The two-part interconnection application process connects your renewable generator system to
the electric grid. This complex process takes approximately 77 business days
from when Pepco receives your complete application to when Pepco issues your
Authorization to Operate, including the time during which your contractor
installs your solar array or other renewable generating system.
Here is information to guide you through the process.
