(NSANR) filed a formal complaint against PJM Interconnection, L.L.C, (PJM), American Electric Power Service Corporation (AEP), and AEP's wholly owned subsidiary Indiana Michigan Power Company (I & M) alleging, that contrary to sections 1.7A.02, 1.3A, 1.17A, 1.26, 212.4, 217.3, 205, 206 and 217 of PJM's Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT), the Interconnection Construction Service Agreement (ICSA) between AEP and NANR, the Interconnection Service Agreement (ISA) between AEP and NANR, the Commission's Order No. 2003 [1] and other applicable FERC decisions, and the FPA, AEP and PJM have refused to properly categorize $2,269,012 of the interconnection costs as Network Upgrades and allocate those costs to AEP and its customers, failed to update AEP's Regional Transmission System Expansion (RTEP) and wrongfully foisted the costs of the Network Upgrades onto NANR by mischaracterizing them as Attachment Facilities, and wrongfully utilized the interconnection of Project T-111 as a means of upgrading its inadequate 69 kV line, which had previously not included adequate re-closing or breaker failure protection, and replacing obsolete relays and other equipment.
