Transmission Owner Engineering & Construction Standards
The facilities of the PJM transmission grid, while operated by PJM, are comprised of the physical facilities owned by various transmission owners. While the facilities of transmission owners are operated by PJM as a fully interconnected transmission network, the physical facilities of each individual transmission owner are designed to the particular engineering and construction standards of that transmission owner.
