FERC today affirmed its historic July 2023 rule that modernizes the nation’s transmission grid by streamlining the generator interconnection process. The rule, known as Order No. 2023, ensures that resources can connect to the transmission system in a reliable, efficient, transparent and timely manner.

This interconnection rulemaking is the first step in a series of major transmission reforms, and FERC Chairman Willie Phillips said there is more to come this spring.

“There is no single action that the Commission can take that will contribute more to enhancing the reliability, resilience and affordability of our electric grid than to facilitate the development of needed electric transmission at just and reasonable rates,” Phillips said. “Stay tuned.”

Today’s orders address rehearing and clarification requests of Order No. 2023, and the first set of compliance orders associated with it.

The rehearing order addresses the respective roles and responsibilities of transmission providers and interconnection customers in the interconnection process. It also clarifies many topics ranging from public interconnection information and the cluster study process to withdrawal and study delay penalties, and the consideration of alternative transmission technologies. It also extends the deadline for transmission providers to submit their compliance filings until 30 days after publication of Order No. 2023-A in the Federal Register.

FERC today also acted on Order No. 2023 compliance filings by Duke Energy Florida, LLC, Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC, and Duke Energy Progress, LLC; Arizona Public Service Company; and Idaho Power Company. The Commission finds that these filings partially comply with Order No. 2023 but directs each entity to submit a further compliance filing.
