Distribution Indicator Maps for Hosting Capacity (Stage 1 Indicators)

The Joint Utilities, with guidance from stakeholders in the 2016 engagement group discussions, have developed a four staged Hosting Capacity implementation roadmap.  The following links for Stage 1 red zone indicator maps display areas where DERs may have a greater cost to interconnect. Building upon the Stage 1 red zone indicator maps, the Stage 2 Hosting Capacity displays will be focused on feeder-level analysis for large scale solar PV to be completed for distribution circuits 12KV by October 1, 2017 in response to the March 9, 2017 DSIP Order.

Granularity:     Circuit


Central Hudson Gas & Electric’s interactive DER System Indicator Map illustrates the areas/circuits where DERs have a greater likelihood of not being easily accommodated on the distribution system. This can be used to aid customers and developers on locations to avoid for large (greater than 300kW) DER systems due to the potential for high integration costs.


Hosting Capacity for Con Edison can be found on their Distribution System Platform web portal by clicking on System Data which covers Hosting Capacity, Peak Load Duration Curves, and historical 8760 load data.


National Grid’s stage 1 indicators can be found on their System Data Portal under the tab ‘DG Red Zone’. The interactive Red Zone maps indicate circuits where the cost to interconnect DG greater than 1MW in capacity will be higher. Stage 2 Hosting Capacity Maps will supersede Red Zone Maps.


NYSEG and RG&E’s distribution indicator maps for Hosting Capacity stage 1 indicators can be found on their Distributed Interconnection Guide Map.


O&R’s Hosting Capacity Distribution Indicator Maps for Stage 1 Indicators can be found online through their webpage Using Private Generation Energy Sources. The interactive Red Zone map indicates circuits where the cost to interconnect DG greater than 1MW in capacity may be higher. Stage 2 Hosting Capacity Maps will supersede Red Zone Maps.
