Silver Run Reducing Costs

Reducing Costs

Our transmission facilities reduce energy bottlenecks within the Delmarva Peninsula, economically optimizing the flow of electricity and resulting in approximately $17 million in annual savings to Delmarva electric consumers.

Silver Run Renewable Energy


Silver Run Electric established a first-of-its-kind project construction cost containment to protect electricity consumers from paying for cost overruns; a new, consumer-focused approach in the utility world.

Our innovative spirit extends to Silver Run Electric’s use of environmentally-sensitive installation technologies and route options that protect wetlands and wildlife, which were a key reason Silver Run Electric was awarded the project.

Silver Run Competition

Competition is Our Difference

Competition for new transmission development brings significant value to electricity consumers and the regions they live in. Our company was selected through a competitive bidding process pursuant to FERC Order 1000 to develop Silver Run’s transmission facilities. Because of this competitive process, PJM received a cost-effective, innovative solution that answered unique challenges to PJM’s request for proposals – such as the development of a three-mile underground river crossing to connect transmission lines to one of the largest nuclear installations in the United States.

How the PJM Electric Market Works

PJM manages the flow of electricity in all or part of 13 states, serving about 65 million customers.
