The purpose of this presentation is to provide an update on the NSPI processes related to incorporating distributed generation on the NSPI distribution network. This will be a panel discussion, addressing three key areas of activity related to this topic:

a) The COMmunity Feed In Tariff (COMFIT) program in Nova Scotia – An overview
b) Distributed Generation Impact Studies and Implementation
c) Transmission System impact Assessment Process
d) Interaction Between Distributed Generation and the Maritime Link Project.

The presentation will include a Q/A period to allow attendees to explore topics presented during this panel presentation. All presenters are employed by NSPI and are active in their respective roles in this program.

Mr. Ron Zamani, EIT will be presenting the overview of the program and the process and procedures being followed to receive, approved and progress generation connection applications. Ms. Amy Chopeck, EIT will then introduce the engineering study and design efforts required to take an approved project from concept to reality. Finally, Mr. Bob Creighton, P.Eng will discuss the impact of increasing distributed generation on the NSPI transmission system, with a tie into the Maritime Link project.
