Maryland PSC approves 3.3-MW solar project of OneEnergy

Because no party objected to it, a proposed order from a Public Utility Law Judge at the Maryland Public Service Commission approving a 3.3-MW solar project was declared on Sept. 5 to be a final order of the commission.

On April 1, an application had been filed by OneEnergy Cambridge Solar LLC for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity on a 3.3-MW (ac) solar photovoltaic facility in Dorchester County. The $9m project will be located on a 25-acre site. The site is part of a larger, 365.32-acre leased farm located at Bucktown Road in Dorchester County, about one mile north of Indian Bone Road.

A Generation Interconnection Combined Feasibility and System Impact Study Report has been completed by PJM Interconnection. PJM found, among other things, no transmission network impacts, no need for new system reinforcements, and no potential congestion due to local energy deliverability. Interconnection is planned at the Choptank Electric Cooperative’s Airey substation.

OneEnergy Cambridge Solar is a subsidiary of OneEnergy Inc. (d/b/a OneEnergy Renewables), with offices located in Seattle, Wash., and Portland, Ore. OneEnergy Renewables is engaged in the development of utility-scale renewable energy projects.

A project contact listed in the April 1 application is: Gia Clark, OneEnergy Cambridge Solar LLC c/o OneEnergy Renewables, 101 Yesler Way, Suite 401, Seattle, WA 98104, Phone (206) 922-7075, Fax (206) 922-7079, gia@oneenergyrenewables.com.
