Distributed generation (DG) is the interconnection of customer-owned, onsite power generation to the utility distribution system, commonly known as the grid. DG is also referred to as operating synchronously or in parallel with the grid. DG can also be referred to as Distributed Resources (DR) and can include Distributed Renewable Generation (DRG). Oncor works with DG customers to ensure safe and reliable interconnection.
Examples of DG:
- Solar (Photovoltaic)
- Landfill gas
- Diesel-fueled engines
- Natural gas fueled micro-turbines
Oncor works with DG customers to ensure safe and reliable interconnection. If you are interested in connecting to the Oncor system, please be aware that an Interconnection Application and Interconnection Agreement are required prior to interconnecting.
