2016 Regional Transmission Expansion Plan Report

PJM’s Regional Transmission Expansion Plan identifies transmission system additions and improvements needed to keep electricity flowing to the millions of people throughout PJM’s region. PJM’s annual RTEP Report describes transmission study input data, processes and results, as well as PJM Board-approved transmission upgrades and process changes during the previous year. Periodically, PJM publishes white papers that present study input parameters and address transmission planning topics of current stakeholder interest.
