The Federal Electric Regulatory Commission (FERC) has recently issued Order No. 2023, representing a significant legislative milestone aimed at tackling the hurdles surrounding grid interconnection. This Order brings crucial reforms meant to ensure resources are incorporated into the transmission grid reliably, quickly, and more efficiently. The Order was approved at an ideal time, as the energy sector is experiencing major transformation due to challenging energy targets and mandates from the federal and state levels.

Meanwhile, the nation’s generation interconnection queues are facing a colossal backlog. About 2,000 gigawatts (GW) of clean energy and storage resources have been queued-up as of the end of 2022.
