What determines the size of the Qualifying Facility Energy System?

The system size limits are set by the type of service the member now has or would qualify for with new construction:

  • A small service is allowed a system that is capable of producing up to 120% of the member's annual usage or 25 kW, whichever is less
  • A medium or large service is allowed a system that is capable of producing up to 120% of the member's annual usage or 150 kW, whichever is less

Facilities larger than those that are specified above would fall outside of our Level 1 or Level 2 fast-tracking process and will require an interconnection study to be completed in order to interconnect with the YVEA system. There are other conditions that may preclude an installation from fast-track processing and these conditions are specified in the YVEA interconnection policy.
