Remote Intelligent Gateways (RIG)
Generation facilities that want to interconnect at the transmission level must install and maintain a field Remote Intelligent Gateway (RIG) unit that can interface with an operator’s system to supply required data to the California Independent System Operator (CAISO).
The CAISO regulatory committee is responsible for maintaining the reliability and accessibility of one of the largest and most modern power electrical grids in the world. In addition to traditional power generation plants, many privately owned and operated solar photovoltaic (PV) systems supply power for grid availability. CAISO maintains an exacting process to both gain access to, and continue to participate in, California’s open energy market.
Nor-Cal is a certified RIG provider through CAISO, and can provide the following expertise to ensure a successful project:
• CAISO Process Management, including documentation submittals support
• RIG design, procurement, configuration, programming, installation, testing and certification with CAISO
