EDP Renewables North America LLC has proposed the addition of 100 MW of wind generation with 13% (13 MW) capacity at a project in northwest Pennsylvania, said a PJM Interconnection facilities study on the project dated June 2014.
The project would interconnect to the Erie East–Erie South 230-kV circuit between the Erie East and Four Mile Junction substations, approximately 0.25 mile from the Erie East substation. The generation facility will interconnect with Pennsylvania Electric, a FirstEnergy (NYSE: FE) company, at a new three-breaker ring bus-configured switching station.
EDP’s requested Commercial Operation Date (COD) for the generation facility is Dec. 27, 2015, the study noted. The project entered the PJM queue in October 2010 and has a ways to go yet in the review process, including an interconnection service agreement.
