Indoor panel 24” x 24” by 8” deep with the following
5 cycle breaker 200 amp
Sync device 25
Under over voltage device 27 / 59
Over / under frequency relay 81 o / u
May be combined into single SEL 547 relay
Panel and Relay settings and programming $ 12,500
My services for filling out and assisting the PLAN A level 4 application
Is $ 130 per hour portal to portal
Expected to spend about 16 hours total estimate $ 2,080
Gathering data and creating one line diagram
And setting up account online and submitting to comed
And reviewing start up
Not included is any fees or charges from com-ed for this project.
Com-ed may require Witness testing which will cost about $3,000
To get the relays tested on your site and in front of com-ed
I Said this cost too much
I fully understand your position and agree with you.
I have been building power plants for over 27 years and understand that the smaller the prime mover the lees inviting to connect to grid it is.
And the electrical equipment and com-ed make it cost prohibitive.
It is not Me that is causing the cost to be so much.
The material and time to get the system set up to com-ed’s specifications are the problem.
I have suggestion if you are open to other ways of doing things ?
You could take your AC power and run it through some diodes on a full way bridge of appropriate amps size
To get a voltage that would feed a on grid solar panel inverter.
The solar inverters are IEEE 1547 compliant and can get interconnect approval in about 5 weeks for $50
Do you want my help to do this ?
