In general, CAISO only needs one meter. However, there may be a certain language in an interconnection agreement or AAA that requires the location to use a primary counter and a backup counter. For large projects, the industry standard is to have two meters on site. In the event of a meter failure, this allows for a smooth transition to the backup counter for billing purposes. There are other possible criteria. A complementary interconnection agreement and/or AAE can contain a language that determines whether a generator should participate or not. It depends on local utilities or accounting authorities. During the validation process, there are several elements that can be expected to be executed and completed 30 days before the synchronization mark. These include regulatory contractual agreements that are fully executed, including elements such as the new Planning Coordinator or SC Selection Letter, the new Planning Coordinator or SC Acceptance Letter, signed PGA and MSA documents, Concluded and Signed Generating Resources Data Model (TDSO), the execution of control and protection documentation, the participating intermittent resource program or the PIRP Documentation and final version of contracts submitted by the SC. Not all states and regions have ISOs and, subsequently, suppliers do not engage in wholesale electricity markets. These regions must continue to respect the open access imposed by FERC, but electricity exchanges between utilities are mainly facilitated by power purchase agreements (PPAs) and bilateral agreements.
210 days before the start of synchronization, US-MOST provides you with a first package of sites containing RIG IFC and an executed connection agreement. You will be able to see the best results of the project in real time and use the information to make the necessary adjustments to the final result of the CAISO. It also allows you to see where your project is in terms of the requirements needed to complete the process. This will give you everything you need to make the necessary changes..
