FERC yesterday extended the deadline for comments on grid operator PJM’s capacity market compliance filing from April 22 to May 15. The compliance filing is PJM’s plan to enact FERC’s December decision to limit the participation of subsidized clean energy in its capacity market, and it earned high initial marks from renewable energy providers, though some states questioned its accelerated timeline . Democrat Commissioner Richard Glick said in a separate statement that he would have preferred to extend the deadline to June 1, as Ohio regulators requested, but FERC’s notice, issued at the directive of Chairman Neil Chatterjee, did not provide an explanation for the new deadline.
