Surplus Interconnection Requests

Surplus interconnection requests are generation projects which will utilize any unused portion of an existing generating facility’s interconnection service established in an existing Interconnection Service Agreement, such that if the surplus interconnection service is utilized, the total amount of interconnection service at the Point of Interconnection would remain the same.

Public Policy Requirements

The State Agreement Approach detailed in the PJM Operating Agreement, Schedule 6, section 1.5.9  WEB | PDF provides a mechanism whereby a state or group of states can submit a public policy project to PJM to address state-specific public policy requirements, so long as the state(s) agrees to pay all costs associated with the state-selected build-out included in the Regional Transmission Expansion Plan.

New Jersey Board of Public Utilities Order 

On Nov. 18, 2020, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) notified PJM of an Offshore Wind Transmission Order PDF specifying its public policy requirements for offshore wind. The order requested that PJM open a competitive proposal window in 2021 to solicit onshore and offshore project proposals that address New Jersey’s public policy needs. PJM opened a 120 day State Agreement Approach proposal window on April 15, 2021 to solicit proposals. On June 30, 2021, the NJBPU notified PJM of two Board Orders announcing awards of offshore wind generation Solicitation #2 to Ocean Wind II and Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind Project I.

On October 26, 2022, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities issued a Board Order PDF notifying PJM of its selection of the transmission project(s) that it will sponsor to achieve its stated public policy goals of injecting 7,500 MW of offshore wind into New Jersey by 2035. PJM will convene a special TEAC meeting on November 4, 2022, to discuss the project(s) that they have selected and will seek PJM Board approval in December 2022.

The NJBPU-selected project(s) will include the construction of a new Larrabee Collector substation (LCS). Following PJM Board approval in December, generators will be able to request the LCS as a point of interconnection (POI) when submitting an interconnection queue request.

The selected SAA project will result in creating SAA Capability as follows:

Location State Transmission Owner SAA Capability MFO MW Energy MW Capacity
Larrabee Collector 230 kV – Larrabee NJ MAOD 1,200 1,200 1,200 360
Larrabee Collector 230 kV - Atlantic NJ MAOD 1,200 1,200 1,200 360
Larrabee Collector 230 kV - Smithburg NJ MAOD 1,342 1,342 1,342 402.6
