You can sell power directly to the utility, provided your DG is properly connected at high voltage, and properly configured to respond to system conditions. For example, there must be a way for Con Edison to trip the generator via remote signal in the event that a system problem occurs. For purposes of reliability, and depending on your contractual arrangement with Con Edison, your DG may be designed for multiple contingencies. The example in the diagram shows a DG with second contingency design. It can sustain the loss of two feeders and still supply power to the system.
