Check out our client alert on FERC’s recent conditional approval of MISO’s revised large generator interconnection process.  It provides highlights of the ruling and identifies next steps that MISO must take in order to flesh out some issues, including certain milestones that generators must meet in order to move towards getting their project interconnected.

Beth Soholt, executive director of Wind on the Wires, believes that the ruling is pretty consistent with what those in the industry expected, and that the intent was to give generators a more clear picture up front of what the actual costs are for carrying a project through to interconnection.  She thinks that we’ll have to wait and see how MISO interprets the clarification requirements, and how generators respond to the new process, to really understand what the impact will be and whether this will result in a material change in the number of projects entering the queue.

Stay tuned!
