FERC approved ISO request to distribute penalty proceeds and nonrefundable interconnection funds

On Feb. 15, 2022, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved the California ISO’s Nov. 2, 2023, filing to distribute the proceeds of the Rules of Conduct penalties collected during 2022, the forfeited study deposits from 2022 for projects interconnecting to Southern California Edison Co.’s distribution system.  On that same day, FERC issued a separate order approving the California ISO’s Nov. 29, 2023, filing to distribute the supplemental proceeds of the Rules of Conduct penalties collected during 2020 related to a denied FERC appeal. The FERC order related to 2022 and the FERC order related to 2020 are available on the Regulatory Filings and Orders webpage.


Eligible scheduling coordinators will receive their distribution of the 2020 Rules of Conduct penalties, the 2022 Rules of Conduct penalties, and the 2022 forfeited study deposits on the T+9B Settlement Statement for trade date March 18, 2024 via charge code 1592 for Rules of Conduct penalties, and charge code 8526 for forfeited study deposits.


Rules of Conduct penalties will be distributed to those scheduling coordinators that were not assessed a financial penalty under section 37 for 2020 and 2022, respectively, based on the pro rata share of grid management charge they paid during the calendar year. The interconnection study deposits will be distributed pro rata based on grid management charge paid during the calendar year without regard to whether a scheduling coordinator was assessed a penalty under section 37 for the year.
