Connecting a Generator ≤ 10 kW

Looking to install a generator? Participate in the Net Metering program.

The Net Metering program allows Entegrus customers the ability to earn credits by exporting surplus energy back onto the utility distribution grid. These credits can then be used to reduce the customers energy costs. 

To participate in Net Metering:

  • You must be an Entegrus customer
  • The customer generates electricity primarily for the customer's own use
  • The customer conveys the electricity that is generated directly from the point of generation to another point for the customer’s own consumption, without reliance on the distributor’s distribution system;
  • The customer conveys any electricity that is in excess of what is consumed by the generator into the distributor’s distribution system

See O. Reg. 541/05 Net Metering  Ontario Energy Board Act, 1998, S.O. 1998, c. 15, Sched. B

Application Process for Generators ≤ 10 kW:

  1. Download the Preliminary Consultation Information Request (PCIR) and the Micro-Embedded Generation Facility Connection Agreement (PDF) and complete the required fields.
  2. Email the completed forms, along with the project Site Layout, Single Line Diagram, and Generation Specifications to the Entegrus Generation Department.
  3. Once the application is deemed complete, Entegrus will review documentation and check available feeder generation capacity. Entegrus will provide a letter indicating if the project may proceed.
  4. Entegrus will then send a Service Layout or an Offer To Connect. If you agree to the connection under the conditions of the Service Layout or the Offer To Connect, please coordinate the connection with Entegrus. (Note: ESA approval is required prior to any connections to Entegrus' distribution system). Entegrus will send the counter-signed Micro-Embedded Generation Facility Agreement upon receipt of payment.
