Attachment facilities and local upgrades (if required) along with terms and conditions to interconnect this project, under queue #Z2-090, will be specified in a separate two party Interconnection Agreement (IA) between Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) and the Grid Stability Systems as this project is not a FERC jurisdictional interconnection. The queue application on the project was filed in April 2014.

Z2-090 will interconnect with the ComEd distribution system on a 12.5kV feeder out of the TDC 387 Blackhawk substation.
