Distributed Generation Workshops

The interconnection process is complex and being improved. Utility-hosted DG Workshops are very helpful for anyone seeking to get more familiar with the process. They are free and and sponsored by the Massachusetts utility companies as part of their agreement filed with DPU in October 2013.

Next Interconnection Workshop

Distributed Generation Interconnection Seminar

National Grid will be hosting a Distributed Generation Interconnection Seminar on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at National Grid, 1101 Turnpike Street North Andover, MA 01845. This seminar will focus on distributed generation interconnection process and technical aspects of interconnecting to National Grid’s electric power system.

National Grid would like to invite you to this complimentary seminar. Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. for check-in. The Seminar will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. and end at 12:30 pm.

Seating is limited and reservations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis so early registration is recommended. The reservation period will close Wednesday, October 18. You will be required to provide proof of registration. Given the limited seating, we reserve the right to limit reservations to no more than two representatives per company and ask that car pooling be utilized due to limited parking availability at our facility.
