Generator Interconnection

The MPSC has jurisdiction over distribution-level generator interconnection for rate-regulated utilities and cooperative utilities.  Michigan’s electric interconnection and net metering standards were last revised in 2009. There is an ongoing stakeholder process taking place in the MPSC's MI Power Grid: Interconnection Standards and Worker Safety Workgroup to update the rules.

Michigan's rate-regulated electric utilities and alternative electric suppliers (AESs) file distributed generation reports by March 31 each year. These reports are filed in the U-15787 docket and include data about customer participation in the Distributed Generation Program. MPSC Staff prepare annual distributed generation reports summarizing the data.
