Eastern Shore Solar I LLC has proposed a 4.16 MWC (0 MWE) capacity only upgrade to prior PJM Interconnection queue project W1-003, said a PJM study of the project dated February 2014.
The combined W1-003 and Z1-100 project is now a 20 MWE (11.76 MWC) resource. W1-003/Z1-100 is a solar generating project located in New Church, Accomack County, Va. PJM studied Z1-100 as a 4.16 MW injection into Delmarva Power and Light’s (DPL) system at the Oak Hall 138 kV substation and evaluated it for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2017. The planned in-service date for this project is June 1, 2016.
The PJM website shows that the Z1-100 project entered the queue in October 2013 and is still several steps short of final approval. The W1-003 project entered the queue in February 2010.
The February 2014 study is a Combined Feasibility/System Impact Study designed to determine a plan, with approximate cost and construction time estimates, to connect the subject generation interconnection project to the PJM network at a location specified by the interconnection customer, which is Eastern Shore Solar I LLC.
