WATT to FERC: GETs belong in Interconnection Studies

The WATT Coalition filed comments with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in support of their Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Improvements to Generator Interconnection Procedures and Agreements. 

Among other comments, WATT suggests that the requirement to consider Grid Enhancing Technologies in interconnection studies be an “opt-out” standard rather than “opt-in.” We believe advanced transmission technologies should be considered as a routine matter in interconnection in all regions under the Commission’s jurisdiction.
