Before You Begin

To get started, you'll need to submit an application and we'll use it to confirm your project meets the AUC's Micro-Generator Application Guideline requirements. There are some pieces of information you'll need to provide us with your package, so please make sure you have included them:

  • Your service location and Site ID
    (13-digit number on your bill that starts with 0040)
  • Your proposed generation production capacity
  • Single line diagram
  • Site Plan
  • Proof of CSA Compliance
  • Third party authorization

After we receive your completed application, you'll move into Phase 1. You can review what happens in each phase below. If you've worked with us before on a Micro-Generation project, you can go straight to the application.
