Electric Generating Equipment Considerations
Considering the installation of electric generating equipment?
Southwestern Electric Power Company is ready to work with you on the safe and reliable
interconnection of your electric generating equipment with the Southwestern Electric Power Company
Off-the-shelf portable generators, often used for backup or emergency power, should not be connected to
your internal wiring without proper isolation from
Southwestern Electric Power Company network.
However, if you are considering the installation of permanent electric generating equipment (such as a
solar or wind generating system), which will be used often and connected to your internal wiring, we can
help by reviewing your plans. Following the proper interconnection procedures is important for your safety
and for the reliable operation of the Southwestern Electric Power Company system and your
installation. For more specific information, download our
