Hosting Capacity Map and Interconnection Analysis Portal
Eversource is committed to working toward a clean energy future, and we want to help distributed generation contractors, vendors and solar developers select locations for interconnections to Eversource’s system by providing them with the tools they need.
Hosting Capacity Map
If you are a distributed generation contractor or vendor, you can find optimal locations for interconnections to our system using our Hosting Capacity Map. This map details the hosting capacity by circuit. Each circuit on our system is displayed with a color matching its remaining capacity. Clicking on a circuit will also bring up more detail about the circuit, its remaining capacity and related substation.
This information shows the capacity Eversource’s infrastructure can accommodate, with limited system upgrades, while still reliably and safely delivering electricity to our customers.
Capacity on the circuits and at substations can be increased through project funded upgrades. Small, limited projects may be supported without project funded upgrades.
Answers to frequently asked questions about the hosting capacity map are also available.
