Con Edison, along with the JU, utilized the EPRI drive tool to determine the available amount of hosting capacity on our overhead feeders.
Connected generation refers to the amount of private generation that is currently in operation or has passed all Con Edison engineering screens and has received design approval.
Hosting capacity maps currently encompass all Con Edison overhead circuits that operate at a voltage class 12kV or above. We have provided static, network level hosting capacity maps that can be navigated to by selecting the network layer in the visualization platform. Con Edison will be introducing our 4kV overhead circuits in the visualization tool at the end of 2017.
Hosting capacity is the amount of private energy resources that can be accommodated without adversely affecting power quality or reliability under existing control configurations, and without requiring infrastructure upgrades. These values will not replace the need for locational specific utility engineering studies.
Queued generation refers to the amount of private generation (in MW’s) that has an approved interconnection application currently in progress.
