PJM works on interconnect for 2-MW battery storage project in New Jersey

White Oak Solar Energy LLC has proposed to PJM Interconnection a 2 MW energy only battery storage facility to be located in Dover, Delaware.

PJM said in a February 2015 study that it looked at this project, under queue #AA1-091, as a 2 MW injection into the Delmarva Power and Light (DPL) system at the City of Dover’s Horse Pond 69-kV Substation and evaluated the project for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2018. The White Oak Solar has requested a Nov. 1, 2015, in-service date.

AA1-091 would be physically interconnected to the City of Dover’s Horse Pond 69/12-kV substation. The Point of Interconnection for the purpose of effectuating sales into the PJM market will be where the DPL system connects to the City of Dover’s system at the Cartanza 230-kV Substation.

The intent of a Combined Feasibility/System Impact Study like this one is to determine a plan, with approximate cost and construction time estimates, to connect the subject generation interconnection project to the PJM network at a location specified by the interconnection customer.
