EDF Renewable proposes to install PJM Interconnection Project #Y1-030, a 100-MW (13-MW capacity) wind facility connecting to the American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP) Forest 69-kV substation.
The location of the wind generating facility is in Wyandot County, Ohio, said a Facilities Study on the project from PJM, dated December 2014. The requested project in-service date is Dec. 31, 2015. PJM and AEP understand that EDF has established the following schedule dates:
- Receive back feed from AEP: Oct. 1, 2015; and
- Commercial Operation Date: Dec. 31, 2015.
The PJM website shows that this project has been in the queue since February 2012 and that it is still short, including the working out of an Interconnection Service Agreement, of clearing the PJM approval process. A prior major step, an Impact Study, was issued in June 2013.
