Capacity benefit margin (CBM)

The amount of transmission transfer capability reserved by load-serving entities to ensure access to generation from interconnected systems to meet generation reliability requirements.

Reservation of CBM by a load-serving entity allows that entity to reduce its installed generating capacity below a level that may otherwise have been necessary without interconnections to meet its generation reliability requirements.
