PJM Invests $1B in Infrastructure Upgrades

October 22, 2017

PJM Interconnection, the group that is responsible for operating and maintaining the grid that delivers wholesale electricity to 13 states and Washington, D.C., has announced over $1 billion in upgrade projects aimed at improving grid infrastructure on the east coast.

The plan includes 32 projects ranging from a few million dollars up to about $200 million, and they will begin to be implemented in the beginning of 2018. Click here to be directed to the PJM website for a detailed list of the individual projects.

A good number of projects include increasing the voltage of the grid to 69kV. Generally, these upgrades have long-term cost benefits to customers, as a higher voltage grid requires less infrastructure and is easier to maintain. However, the short-term costs could also directly affect customers. To discuss these potential impacts, please feel free to contact us.
