New Jersey is going to become the first state to take advantage of the State Agreement Approach portion of PJM Interconnection's Operating Agreement since PJM added the State Agreement Approach to its Operating Agreement seven years ago in implementing the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Order 1000.

The State Agreement Approach enables states to contract for the transmission facilities required to advance their specific energy goals by utilizing the competitive solicitation process in PJM's existing planning framework.

In this case, PJM, at the request of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, will include New Jersey's needs for offshore-wind-related transmission improvements in a competitive proposal window set to open in the first quarter of 2021.

PJM will evaluate any proposals it receives in concert with the NJBPU. New Jersey will retain the right to elect whether to move forward with any specific project proposal.
