Supreme Court ‘Stays’ CPP Implementation; PJM Continues Analysis

On Feb. 9, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a “stay” of implementation of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan while judicial proceedings continue. The federal court appeal is ongoing. The decision delays implementation that otherwise would have occurred during the appeals process.

PJM is committed to delivering to the states, as promised, the analysis of the potential effects of the Clean Power Plan on wholesale markets and reliability. PJM intends to complete the planned analysis. Recently, PJM posted on its website the scope of the modeling for the analysis with the anticipated timeline for producing results. Our role is to provide data and analysis to help inform the states should the states need to make decisions in the future.
