Electric Generating Equipment Considerations
Considering the installation of electric generating equipment?
Indiana Michigan Power is ready to work with you on the safe and reliable
interconnection of your electric generating equipment with the Indiana Michigan Power
Off-the-shelf portable generators, often used for backup or emergency power, should not be connected to
your internal wiring without proper isolation from
Indiana Michigan Power network.
However, if you are considering the installation of permanent electric generating equipment (such as a
solar or wind generating system), which will be used often and connected to your internal wiring, we can
help by reviewing your plans. Following the proper interconnection procedures is important for your safety
and for the reliable operation of the Indiana Michigan Power system and your
installation. For more specific information, download our
