PPL Renewable Energy LLC has proposed a flywheel facility located in Exeter Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, with a total capability of 20 MW with 0.0 MW of this output being recognized by PJM Interconnection as capacity.
PJM noted in a Facility Study on this project, dated November 2014, that the requested in-service date for this project is Jan. 1, 2015. This study does not imply a PPL Electric Utilities (PPL EU) commitment to this in-service date.
This project, with queue number Y3-104, will interconnect with the PPL Electric Utilities transmission system through the Stanton-Exeter 69 kV line. The point of interconnection (POI) will occur at the dead-end structure at the generation substation. The study says PPL EU currently plans to begin construction of the supporting infrastructure for this interconnection in late 2015, with completion in mid 2016.
The prior step in the queue process for this project was a March 2014 System Impact Study. Both studies are mid-points in the review process, leading up to a final interconnection service agreement.
