Interconnection – the process of studying how a project will impact the grid once it's plugged in – is a key piece of the advanced energy deployment process. However, over the last few years as deployment accelerates, the interconnection process has stalled to a near standstill – leaving many clean energy projects stuck or even cancelled. To address this increasingly difficult issue, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) began to consider reforms back in 2021, and in July of this year, they issued a ruling based on their considerations.
FERC Order No. 2023 ushers in much needed reforms geared towards clearing the logjam of projects that have built up. In this toolkit, we cover some of the major shifts in the interconnection process as a result of Order 2023, pulling the most important information on what the change is and how it will affect businesses, developers, and consumers. The toolkit also highlights what is to come in the marathon of interconnection reform.
