Maintenance planned; brief outage

Competitive Planning Process

The PJM competitive planning process implements FERC Order 1000. The process affords non-incumbent transmission developers an opportunity to participate in the regional planning and expansion of the PJM bulk electric system. By publishing a set of criteria violations and soliciting solutions from competing transmission developers, PJM and the FERC hope to encourage innovative, cost effective and timely solutions to the challenges of building and maintaining a highly reliable electric system.

PJM will announce in the Transmission Expansion Advisory Committee (TEAC) its intention to solicit competitive solutions to identified planning needs. The “windows” for submitting such solutions fit into three categories and follow the 18-month and 24-month planning cycles as described in Manual 14F: Clean WEB | Clean PDF.

Planning Cycles

Standard Window Length Required In-Service Date (Years)
Long-Term - considers reliability criteria violations, economic constraints, system conditions and public policy requirements 120 days > 5
Short-Term - considers reliability criteria violations 60 days 3-5
Immediate-Need Reliability - considers reliability criteria violations Shortened < 3

While PJM endeavors to adhere to the standard length of the proposal windows, unique situations do arise. When adhering to the standard window length would be unnecessarily burdensome on the transmission developers, PJM may elect to modify the length of a proposal window. Any such changes will be made clear when the proposal window is announced.
