To reduce confusion and increase both transparency and accountability in the interconnection process, the question of state versus federal interconnection jurisdiction must be clearly answered. This Clean Coalition brief first discusses the sources of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) jurisdiction over interconnection and then examines the types of interconnection procedures over which states can properly assert jurisdiction. The brief identifies areas where jurisdiction is readily determined and those areas that will benefit greatly from further FERC guidance. Download the brief here.
