Regulation of utilities and interconnection is in a constant state of flux. Troutman Sanders represents and advises utilities and generators on all aspects of the generation and transmission interconnection requirements.

Our lawyers are fully versed on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Order Nos. 2003 (large generator interconnections) and 2006 (small generator interconnections), along with the varying Regional Transmission Organization (RTO)/Independent System Operators (ISO) interconnection requirements.

We advise clients on streamlining and revising their procedures to allow for cluster studies. We also provide advice on the treatment of generation tie lines as well as transmission-to-transmission interconnections.

  • Counseled utilities regarding generator, load and transmission interconnection agreements.
  • Filed multiple interconnection queue reform proposals with FERC.
  • Reviewed and negotiated interconnection agreements and transmission-to-transmission interconnection agreements for several investor-owned utilities.
