requested by the customer, the customer shall notify the Cooperative by submitting a completed
Preliminary Interconnection Site Review Request. The customer shall submit a separate Preliminary
Interconnection Site Review Request for each point of interconnection if information about multiple

Section 2. Utility Review
Following submission of the Preliminary Interconnection Site Review Request by the customer the
Cooperative shall review the plans of the facility interconnection and provide the results of its review to
the customer, in writing, within 30 calendar days. If the customer requests that multiple interconnection
site reviews be conducted the Cooperative shall make reasonable efforts to provide the customer with
the results of the review within 30 calendar days. If the Cooperative cannot meet the deadline it will
provide the customer with an estimated date by which it will complete the review. Any items that
would prevent Parallel Operation due to violation of safety standards and/or power generation limits
shall be explained along with a description of the modifications necessary to remedy the violations.
The preliminary interconnection site review is non-binding and need only include existing data and

site in the event that data is not readily available. The Cooperative shall notify the customer if
additional site screening may be required prior to interconnection of the facility. The customer shall be
responsible for the actual costs for conducting the preliminary interconnection site review and any
subsequent costs associated with site screening that may be required.
