N.J. Admin. Code § 14:8-5.7 - Interconnection fees
(a) An EDC or supplier/provider shall not charge an application or other fee to an applicant that requests level 1 interconnection review. However, if an application for level 1 interconnection review is denied because it does not meet the requirements for level 1 interconnection review and the applicant resubmits the application under another review procedure in accordance with 14:8-5.4(p), the EDC may impose a fee for the resubmitted application, consistent with this section.
(b) For a level 2 interconnection review, the EDC may charge fees of up to $ 50.00 plus $ 1.00 per kilowatt of the customer-generator facility's capacity, plus the cost of any minor modifications to the electric distribution system or additional review, if required under 14:8-5.5 (o)3 or 4. Costs for such minor modifications or additional review shall be based on EDC estimates and shall be subject to case-by-case review by the Board or its designee. Costs for engineering work done as part of any additional review shall not exceed $ 100.00 per hour.
(c) For a level 3 interconnection review, the EDC may charge fees of up to $ 100.00 plus $ 2.00 per kilowatt of the customer-generator facility's capacity, as well as charges for actual time spent on any impact and/or facilities studies required under 14:8-5.6. Costs for engineering work done as part of an impact study or facilities study shall not exceed $ 100.00 per hour. If the EDC must install facilities in order to accommodate the interconnection of the customer-generator facility, the cost of such facilities shall be the responsibility of the applicant.
(d) An EDC shall not charge any fee or other charge for connecting to the EDC's equipment or for operation of a customer-generator facility for the purposes of net metering, except for the fees provided for under this subchapter.
