PJM works out new output limits for three PSEG Kearny units

PJM Interconnection on March 24 submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed interim interconnection service agreement among PJM, PSEG Fossil LLC and Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G).

This interim ISA supersedes an interim ISA among the same parties designated as Original Service Agreement No. 3668, which had an effective date of Oct. 10, 2013.

The PSEG interim ISA facilitates an increase of 69 MW to three generating units (consisting of 9 MW for Kearny #12, 40 MW for Kearny #13, and 20 MW for Kearny #14), which are already interconnected to the PJM transmission system located in Kearny, N.J. These changes result in a combined total of 537 MW (consisting of 210 MW at Kearny #12, 218 MW at Kearny #13, and 109 MW at Kearny #14).

The PSEG interim ISA further indicates that PSEG Fossil will have Capacity Interconnection Rights in the amount of 10.2 MW (consisting of 3 MW for Kearny #12, 4.5 MW for Kearny #13, and 2.7 MW for Kearny #14) associated with the interconnection request for the period of time from Feb. 20, 2014, to May 31, 2015.

The PSEG website shows Kearny as a 463-MW, gas-fired peaker.
