OneEnergy pursues 19.5-MW solar project in Maryland

OneEnergy Dorchester LLC has proposed a 19.5 MWE (7.4 MWC; 19.5 MW MFO) solar facility to be located in Linkwood in Dorchester County, Maryland.

The project is on the Delmarva Power and Light system, said a Generation Interconnection Facilities Study Report on the project from PJM Interconnection. The report is dated September 2014.

The original planned in-service date for the project was Dec. 31, 2012. That date was subsequently revised to Dec. 31, 2015, PJM noted. But that new date can’t be met due to the time needed to make local grid upgrades, PJM added.

OneEnergy currently plans to interconnect this project, with a PJM queue number of X3-015, with the Delmarva Power and Light system via a 69-kV circuit from its own substation to a newly constructed Delmarva Power and Light 69-kV ring bus substation.
