Generation Interconnection

The PJM transmission system provides the means for delivering the output of interconnected generators to load centers for end-use customer consumption. PJM’s successful generator interconnection process continues to ensure the reliability of new capacity resources.

PJM’s queue-based interconnection process offers developers the flexibility to explore their respective generation interconnection business opportunities. Each phase of the process establishes various milestone responsibilities for the developer, PJM and each Transmission Owner (TO) impacted by the interconnection request. From the developer’s perspective, the process is structured such that proceeding with each phase imposes increasing financial obligations. A developer has the right to withdraw at any point.

The interconnection process is discussed in detail in PJM Manual 14 Series.
