PJM works on interconnection of 24 MW of Maryland solar

PJM Interconnection recently posted to it website two September 2014 system impact studies for companion solar projects in Maryland proposed by EC&R Solar Development LLC.

These studies are a mid-point in PJM’s review process for these projects.

EC&R Solar Development has proposed a 14.0 MWE (5.32 MWC) solar facility to be located in Worcester County, Maryland. PJM studied this project, under queue number Z1-076, as a 14.0 MW injection into the Delmarva Power and Light system at the Stockton 69-kV substation and evaluated it for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2017.

The Z1-076 project was studied with a commercial probability of 100%. The planned in-service date is Dec. 15, 2015.

EC&R Solar Development has also proposed a 10.0 MWE (3.8 MWC) solar facility to be located in Worcester County, Maryland. It would interconnect with the Stockton 69-kV substation, along with the Z1-076 project, and was evaluated for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2017.

This second project, under queue number Z1-077, was studied with a commercial probability of 100%. The planned in-service date is Dec. 15, 2015.
