Initiate a GI Request

The generator interconnection application asks for detailed technical data and information. We suggest gathering all required information before you begin filling out the electronic form. Although the application may feel time-consuming, compiling Appendix 1 and M1 data now will help you meet upcoming milestones and deadlines. 

A completed application includes electronic copies of each of the following items emailed to the Generator Interconnection team.

Please note, you cannot save an in-progress form and return to it later.

  1.  A fully executed copy of Appendix 1: Application for Generator Interconnection and Attachments
  2. All M1 technical milestones as outlined in Generator Interconnection Process Flow Diagram.
  3. A non-refundable application fee of $5,000 made out to MISO. A D2 deposit to fund the three DPP System Impact Studies and Facilities Study. MISO Wiring Instructions
  4. Demonstration of at least 75% of site control OR an additional $100,000 deposit made out to MISO.  At least 75% of site control must be demonstrated prior to entering DPP Phase 3.

If you think your study varies from these standard study procedures, for example due to a group study or interconnection re-study, check out Appendix 5 of Attachment X for additional information.
