52 Pa. Code § 69.2104. Interconnection application fees.

§ 69.2104. Interconnection application fees.

 The following fee structures and fees will be deemed appropriate for use by electric distribution companies when processing interconnection applications filed under § §  75.21, 75.22, 75.31—75.40 and 75.51 (relating to interconnection standards):

   (1)  Level 1 applications—$100. If an application is denied because it does not meet the requirements of a Level 1 review, and the applicant resubmits the application under another review procedure in accordance with this title, the electric distribution company may impose a fee for the incremental expense attributable to the resubmitted application consistent with the fees established for the new level of review.

   (2)  Level 2 applications. Base fee of $250 plus $1 per kW of the nameplate capacity rating of the customer-generator’s facility, plus the cost of any minor modifications to the electric distribution company’s distribution system or additional review if required under §  75.38 (relating to Level 2 interconnection review). Costs for minor modifications or additional review must be based on electric distribution company estimates and must be subject to review by the Commission at the request of either party. Costs for engineering work done as part of any additional review should not exceed $100 per hour. If an application is denied because it does not meet the requirements of a Level 2 review, and the applicant resubmits the application under another review procedure in accordance with this title, the electric distribution company may impose a fee for the incremental expense attributable to the resubmitted application consistent with the fees established for the new level of review.

   (3)  Level 3 applications. Base fee of $350 plus $2 per kW of the nameplate capacity rating of the customer-generator’s facility, plus the cost of any feasibility studies, system impact studies or facilities studies required under §  75.39 (relating to Level 3 interconnection review). Costs for engineering work done as part of a feasibility study, system impact study or facilities study should not exceed $100 per hour. If the electric distribution company must install facilities to accommodate the interconnection of the customer-generator facility, the cost of the facilities shall be the responsibility of the customer-generator. If an application is denied because it does not meet the requirements of a Level 3 review, and the applicant resubmits the application under another review procedure in accordance with this title, the electric distribution company may impose a fee for the incremental expense attributable to the resubmitted application consistent with the fees established for the new level of review.

   (4)  Level 4 applications. In those instances when a Level 4 application is processed using the Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 review process, the fees set forth for those particular review levels should apply. A fee may not be assessed for an area network impact study conducted under §  75.40 (relating to Level 4 interconnection review). A Level 4 application reviewed under §  75.40(d) should be subject to a base fee of $350 plus $2 per kW of the nameplate capacity rating of the customer-generator’s facility. If an application is denied because it does not meet the requirements of a Level 4 review, and the applicant resubmits the application under another review procedure in accordance with this title, the electric distribution company may impose a fee for the incremental expense attributable to the resubmitted application consistent with the fees established for the new level of review.
