Faster grid connections a priority

Finally FERC recognizes the tragedy of new green energy sources taking years to connect to the grid. They hope to reduce the wait to three years.

"At the end of 2021, more than 1,400 gigawatts of generation and storage projects were waiting in interconnection queues throughout the country - three-times more that five years ago, the FERC said.

On average, it takes about three years for a project to get connected to the grid."

You wonder who has been asleep at the switch on this one. Heads should roll!!

Surely we can do better!!!


Coal and natural gas companies do not want all that cheap renewable energy making them lose customers and money. They are influencing regulators to go slow.
