Hosting capacity is the amount of private energy resources that can be accommodated without adversely affecting power quality or reliability under existing control configurations, and without requiring infrastructure upgrades. These values will not replace the need for locational specific utility engineering studies performed through the Standard Interconnection Requirements.
Orange & Rockland, along with other utilities in New York, utilized the EPRI drive tool to determine the available amount of hosting capacity on our overhead feeders.
Queued generation refers to the amount of private generation (in MW total rating) that has an approved interconnection application currently in progress.
Connected generation refers to the amount of private generation that has been given permission to operate on Orange & Rockland's system.
Hosting capacity maps currently encompass all Orange & Rockland feeders that operate at a voltage class 12kV or above.
