Cogeneration and Small Power Production

In compliance with Minnesota Adopted Rules Relating to Cogeneration and Small Power Production Chapter 7835, Itasca-Mantrap Cooperative Electrical Association is obligated to interconnect with and purchase electricity from cogenerators and small power producers which satisfy the conditions of a qualifying facility. Itasca-Mantrap Cooperative Electrical Association has available and will provide free information to all interested Members regarding rates and interconnection requirements. 

An application for interconnection is required for a qualifying facility to interconnect and operate in parallel with the cooperative’s distribution system and is subject to approval by the cooperative. For more information call Marketing & Member Services Manager Nikki Torkelson at 218-732-3377 or 1-888-713-3377.

The Itasca-Mantrap Board of Directors has adopted a new interconnection process, Cooperative Distribution Energy Resource Interconnection Process (C-MIP) to begin June 1, 2019. This policy is comparable to the Public Utilities Commission interconnection process, the State of Minnesota Distributed Energy Resource Interconnection Process (MN-DIP).
