EPE Power Systems Engineer, Julian Thekkemathiote, shared this MISO Reminder:

MISO (Midcontinent Independent System Operator) currently manages the generation and transmission of high-voltage electricity across 15 U.S. states and the Canadian province of Manitoba. As per the latest DPP (Definitive Planning Phase) schedule release by MISO on July 1, 2022, the current 2022 GI (Generation Interconnection) application window DPP-2022 Cycle is set to close on September 15 at 5 pm EST.

Post initial submission, ICs still have the option to withdraw their application prior to DPP Phase 1 Kickoff (scheduled for December 14, 2022) and get 100% of their M2 (Milestone 2) deposit refunded, which is a significant amount of $4,000/MW.

The current MISO interconnection process, from start of DPP Phase 1 to GIA signing, is estimated to take about 373 days in total. Since we are only a few weeks away from the 2022 application window closing, all MISO ICs (Interconnection customers) are encouraged to get their GI applications and fees + deposits submitted in time.

If you have any questions about the application preparation, process, and timelines, EPE would be happy to help you in your endeavors. To learn more about the MISO schedule and get resources, you can visit https://www.misoenergy.org/planning/generator-interconnection/GI_Queue/

The Generation Interconnection Queue is the waiting list for a generation customer to interconnect with an independent system operator. MISO, the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, has a queue that currently consists of 806 projects totaling 126.3 GW. The application deadline for DPP-2022 is September 15, 2022. If you or your organization needs support in filing or completing your interconnection application, please speak to your account manager or schedule a consult to avoid project delays.
