Electric Power Engineers Senior Manager of Resource Integration and Compliance, Ramsey Ayass, shared this information on the upcoming CAISO Queue Cluster 15 Window:
The California ISO (CAISO) recently posted the results of the estimated number of Cluster 15 interconnection requests that they will receive based on a non-binding and confidential survey that was sent out in October 2022. Based on this market notice, generator developers have noted that they plan to submit 279 to 308 new interconnection requests in the upcoming window. My personal prediction is that the number will actually be a lot higher than that, probably 400+.
Since the window of April 1-15, 2023 is just around the corner, I encourage you to reach out soon to my team at Electric Power Engineers, if you are interested in entering CAISO Queue Cluster 15. Due to the large volume of applications that are expected, it is prudent to start planning for your submission from today. Please feel free to message me if you’d like further information on how we can support you with your projects in CAISO and beyond.
