Connection of Qualifying Facility Distributed Generation Resources
Algona Municipal Utilities is committed to providing clean energy for our customers and our future. AMU actively pursues clean energy projects which can be cost effectively added into our generation portfolio and distributed generation from a qualifying facility is such a resource.
Distributed Generation (DG) refers to power generation at the point of consumption. The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 18, Part 292, provides regulations under sections 201 and 210 of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) with regard to small production and cogeneration. Those regulations stipulate that AMU must interconnect with a Qualifying Facility (QF).
For approved Customers with Distributed Generation, Energy delivered to the Customer by AMU will be billed at the appropriate rate class, and energy delivered to AMU by the Customer will be credited to the Customer at the avoided cost rate.
