Facility Connection Requirements

This document defines the requirements for connecting transmission, generation, or end-user (load serving) facilities to the OMU transmission system or for making qualified changes to facilities connected to the OMU transmission system. The requirements established in this document are intended to assure that facilities connected to the transmission grid do not adversely affect reliability and that public safety is maintained.

Owensboro Municipal Utilities, as a Transmission Owner, is required by NERC reliability standard FAC-001-0 requirement 1 to document, maintain, and publish facility connection requirements to ensure compliance with NERC Reliability Standards and applicable Regional Reliability Organization, subregional, Power Pool, and individual Transmission Owner planning criteria and facility connection requirements. OMU’s Facility Connection Requirements document addresses connection requirements for Generation facilities, Transmission facilities, and End-user facilities.
