PJM Answers Complaint on Artificial Island Cost Allocation

On October 9, PJM filed its answer with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in response to a complaint from the Delaware and Maryland public service commissions regarding the cost allocation for the transmission project called Artificial Island. In the filing, PJM does not take a position on the propriety of the cost allocation methodology. This methodology is part of the transmission rates and rate design which are the sole province of the PJM Transmission Owners. They are expected to file their response to the complaint.

PJM’s filing, however, addresses the engineering judgment and process  for the final solution, which PJM asserts is consistent with Order 1000 and offers the most efficient and cost-effective solution to address the system needs.
