Before You Begin

Please review the Distributed Energy Resources DER Interconnection Guide.

We offer a pre-application consultation to provide you with information on the interconnection process and to help you scope the feasibility of your project for the selected location(s) before you submit an application. You will need to know your project location and generator size.

When you are ready to begin the interconnection process, you will need to complete a High Level Study Application so we can study the system capacity and estimate the cost of your generator connection. There are some pieces of information and additional forms you'll need to provide with your application, so please review this list and ensure you have them all:

  • Type of generator (inverter, synchronous, induction)
  • Estimated amount of power generated onto the system
  • Legal land description (add GPS coordinates)
  • Third party authorization
  • Electrician or consultant contact information
  • Site plan diagram

For more information or to submit an application, please email or call 310-WIRE (9473).

Large generators that cannot be supported by the distribution system are required to submit an application to FortisAlberta for a Section 101(2) exemption as per the Electric Utilities Act. Once you submit your completed application, we will respond within 30 days.
