DG-37: Can we request an extension if a system fails to become energized by the deadline specified in the applicable supplier contract? How long is the extension? Can we also get an extension if we do not identify in time a system to replace a forecast quantity?

Any request to extend the deadline for an identified system to become energized must be made in writing to the IPA by the deadlines specified in the applicable supplier contract. Such extension may be granted at the IPA’s sole discretion but only for limited circumstances such as demonstrated delays in a utility approving interconnection of a system, or failure by the PJMGATS or M-RETS to process registration in a timely manner.  Any such extension will not exceed six months and may be shorter depending on the circumstances.  Please also note that no similar extension can be granted if a bidder fails to identify a system to replace a forecast quantity.
