FERC accepts revised interconnect deal for Corona Power project in Pennsylvania

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Jan. 14 accepted a PJM Interconnection filing on Nov. 19, 2014, of an executed interconnection service agreement among PJM, Corona Power LLC and transmission owner PPL Electric Utilities.

This Revised Corona ISA supersedes an ISA among the same parties, which was designated as Original Service Agreement No. 3769, with an effective date of Feb. 4, 2014, and filed with and accepted by the commission. “The Revised Corona ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM transmission system of 643 MW at three generating units (consisting of 227 MW to Unit #5, 208 MW to Unit #6, 208 MW to Unit #7),” said the Nov. 19 filing.

These new units will be at the Sunbury Generation Facility located at Shamokin Dam, Pennsylvania. They are described in the agreement as three new gas combustion generators. Each generator is to be connected to a 18-kV circuit breaker and 18/512-kV step-up transformer. These are projects #X2-025 and #X4-019 in the PJM project queue.

The old agreement had a June 1, 2016, commercial operation target date. That has been revised to Sept. 1, 2017.

The project contact is: Corona Power LLC c/o Sunbury Generation LP, Old Trail Road, Shamokin Dam, PA 17876, Attn: Jeff Specht.
