The map is designed to help contractors and developers find potential project sites. The map shows electric transmission lines, distribution lines and substations in our service areas. It also lists information such as operating voltages, line capacity and substation names.
The map does not guarantee that generators can interconnect at particular times and places. Many factors affect interconnection capability and costs, for example:
You can submit an Interconnection Application to our Generation Interconnection team through email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll determine your requirements and costs based on our review of your project’s location, size and application date compared with other projects in the same area.
In addition, government-permitting procedures may limit the suitability of a particular site. These procedures are designed to minimize environmental and land use impacts. They’re independent of our interconnection process.
Following are frequently asked questions (FAQ) and answers about our PV RAM project map.
At this time, we do not plan to make the map available in any other downloadable format. Following are the reasons for this decision:
We’re considering providing the distribution circuit data in a tabular format.
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) doesn’t require utilities to show the locations of existing distributed generators. Only the amount of the generation on a circuit is required. In addition, the distributed generators are not owned by PG&E. We don’t have permission from distributed generators to show their facility locations. Therefore, the map is not configured to provide this type of information.
