Integration of Renewables

You may be eligible to sell us electricity at negotiated rates and conditions if you own qualifying generation such as wind, solar or hydroelectric that interconnects directly to the electric grid of eligible members of North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation. Unless otherwise negotiated, under these options for the purchase of qualifying energy, you as the generator owner would maintain all Renewable Energy Certificates associated with the output.

What is a Qualifying Facility (QF)?

符合资格设施是1978年公共事业管理政策法案(PURPA)认可的一类发电机。.  There are two types of QFs; small power producers up to 80 MW (typically fueled by renewable resources), or cogeneration facilities.

How do I obtain QF status?

最大净发电量大于1mw的发电设施的所有者或经营者(1,000千瓦)可以通过向联邦能源监管委员会提交自我认证来获得QF资格, or applying for and obtaining a Commission certification of QF status, and must do so by completing and electronically filing a FERC Form No. 556 with the Commission. FERC Order No. 732并没有要求净容量为1mw或更少的设施向委员会提交申报资格证书的申请, although applicants for such facilities may seek certification if they wish to do so.

所有打算向NCEMC出售能源的合格设施发电机开发商都应完全负责遵守所有公用事业要求, applicable federal rules and regulations, 北卡罗来纳州公用事业委员会通过的州和地方条例和法规.  This website does not establish a legal or binding arrangement; it is intended solely to provide access to general information about potential options that may be available through NCEMC. 发电商有责任咨询适当的法律和能源专业人士,以确定发电所有权是否是正确的选择,并在导航适用的要求和程序方面提供帮助.

How to Sell Energy from Qualifying Generation 500 kW and Greater

发电机开发商可将其可再生能源所产生的电力直接与协会会员的电力设施联网出售. 下面是一个循序渐进的大纲,介绍如何连接和承包一个生产能力为500kW及以上的合格设施来销售能源.


All generation facilities must file the Report of Proposed Construction, or if more than 2 megawatts (MW), 获得北卡罗来纳州公用事业委员会(NCUC)颁发的公共便利和必需品证书. 这份报告提供了必要的通知,以安装一个可再生能源发电设施在北卡罗来纳州.

提供以下信息是为了帮助客户满足N项下的要求.C. 一般法规,不打算解释或取代任何法规或规章的规定.

What you need to know

  • 北卡罗来纳州要求,在客户开始建造发电设施之前,必须获得公共便利和必要性证书(CPCN). See N.C.G.S. §62-110.1 for complete text.
  • 法令第(g)节豁免了2兆瓦以下由可再生能源提供燃料的设施. However, 获豁免的发电机必须在建造前向NCUC提交一份拟议建造报告.
  • NCEMC要求所有打算向公用事业公司出售电力的发电机获得适当的认证或提交一份拟议建设报告.

Step 2: Request Approval to Interconnect
所有安装可再生能源发电设备并打算与公用事业网联网或并网运行的发电开发商必须遵守NCEMC成员的所有要求和条件. 拥有太阳能和风能等合格发电设施的开发商将通过联系NCEMC成员,然后向NCEMC成员提交互连请求,寻求互连协议,从而开始互连过程.

Step 3: Submit Notice of Commitment to Sell Output
Once a developer of a generator has met certain requirements, 将“向NCEMC出售合格设施产品的承诺通知书”表格提交给NCEMC,以确定法律上可强制执行的义务(LEO)。.

Step 4: Execute Interconnection Agreement

Step 5: Negotiate a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
A PPA establishes the conditions, contract length of term and rate for which the electricity will be purchased.
