NEIS Standard on Co-generation Systems

NECA 405-2001, Recommended Practice for Installing and Commissioning Interconnected Generation Systems (ANSI) is now available for purchase.

It deals with electric power production sources operating in parallel with an electric utility source. NECA developed this publication in conjunction with T.A. Engineering Inc. of Baltimore, Maryland, which has extensive experience designing distributed power systems and combined heat/power generation systems for industrial and commercial clients. The company’s projects include both conventional co-generation projects up to 10 Megawatts and a 200 kilowatt fuel cell installation.

NECA 405 is one of a series of National Electrical Installation Standards (NEIS) published by the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). It is approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), thus giving it the status of the “official” U.S. standard on the subject of co-generation. NECA 405-2001 sells for $25, with NECA-member and quantity purchase discounts available.
