DG-51: If the system fails to meet its deadline for being energized and showing metered deliveries solely due to a delay in the interconnection by the utility, is the extension automatically granted?

There is no automatic extension under the terms of the applicable supplier contracts.  A Seller must request an extension in writing and such extension may be granted at the IPA’s sole discretion.  However, one of the circumstances specifically mentioned in the applicable supplier contracts as being a circumstance that could lead to an extension being granted is one where the Seller can demonstrate that there is a delay in the utility approving interconnection of a system.  Another such circumstance is the failure by the PJMGATS or M-RETS to process registration in a timely manner.
