Commissioner Cheryl A. LaFleur Statement

Docket No. ER15-1344-001
PJMís Cost Allocation Report and Tariff Revisions
Consistent with my partial dissent in the companion order issued today,1 I would accept PJMís proposed cost assignment for project b2582, a rebuild of the Elmont Ė Cunningham 500 kV transmission line. As explained in that partial dissent, I do not believe the PJM Transmission Owners have demonstrated that 500 kV transmission lines in PJM should no longer be eligible for regional cost allocation if they are proposed solely to address local planning criteria. As a result, I disagree with the orderís rejection of the proposed cost assignment for project b2582.
ďAccordingly, I respectfully dissent in part.Ē
