NORRISTOWN, Pa.–The Board of Managers of PJM Interconnection L.L.C., at its August 1, 2000 meeting, approved the final group of elements in the first coordinated regional transmission expansion plan developed under the PJM Independent System Operator (ISO) structure. The approval completes the process, giving the go-ahead to the transmission facilities required to interconnect over 40 new generating resources to the grid. These new generation projects represent over 15,000 MW of new capacity for the region, proposed to be in service between 2000 and 2005. This additional capacity will help to ensure the reliability of the region while at the same time increasing the robustness of the competitive markets in PJM.
