ACP Statement on FERC Order Advancing Generator Interconnection Rules

The American Clean Power Association (ACP) and its members support the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s much-needed action today on electric generation interconnection, which is a key step towards allowing new clean energy resources to predictably and cost effectively interconnect to the electric grid. This action will help provide relief to the nearly two terawatts of renewables and energy storage that are currently waiting to interconnect. ACP looks forward to reviewing the final order and working in all regions of the country to expedite the ability of clean energy resources to interconnect in a timely manner and deliver multiple benefits to customers.

ACP also urges FERC to build upon today’s order, and swiftly address regional and interregional electric transmission planning and cost allocation. Ensuring our grid is modernized and expanded is key to meeting the nation’s energy goals, providing low-cost energy for consumers, and ensuring reliability and resilience.
