PJM pursues interconnect for 7.3-MW solar project in New Jersey

Gloucester Solar Farm LLC has proposed a solar generating facility located in Gloucester Township, New Jersey, said a combined Feasibility/System Impact Study Report on the project from PJM Interconnection.

“The installed facilities will have a total capability of 7.3 MW with 2.7 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity,” said the report, dated December 2014. “The proposed in-service date for this project is September 30, 2015. This study does not imply a [Publis Service Electric & Gas] commitment to this in-service date.”

The intent of the combined Feasibility/System Impact Study is to determine a plan, with approximate cost and construction time estimates, to connect the subject generation interconnection project to the PJM network. These studies are mid-points in the PJM review process, which culminates with an Interconnection Service Agreement and a Construction Service Agreement.

This project, with a number of AA1-019, in the PJM queue, will interconnect with the PSE&G distribution system at the Beaverbrook 13-kV substation.
