PJM works out revised interconnect deal for Pennsylvania wind facility

PJM Interconnection filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Feb. 12 a revised interconnection construction service agreement (ICSA) with Big Savage LLC and transmission owner Potomac Edison for a 200-MW wind facility in Pennsylvania.

This version supersedes the ICSA entered into among PJM, Big Savage and Potomac Edison, effective August 2011, filed with and accepted by the commission. The Big Savage ICSA supports the executed interconnection service agreement (ISA) among the same parties. Together the two agreements facilitate the interconnection to the PJM transmission system of a 200-MW wind facility, called the Big Savage Wind Farm, located in the Big Savage and Little Savage Mountain areas of Somerset County, Pennsylvania.

The revised Big Savage ICSA includes differences from the Big Savage 2011 ICSA that include: the addition of queue no. Z2-013; removal of “a FirstEnergy Company” in reference to Potomac Edison; updated notice information in section 10.0; a revised single-line diagram in Schedule B; the addition, in Schedules C and I, of a breaker facility to be built by Interconnected Transmission Owner; clarifications to the description in Schedules G and I of the 138 kV–35.5 kV Interconnection Customer owned transformation substation; and minor ministerial revisions.

Wind company contact information is: Big Savage LLC, 1251 Waterfront Place, 3rd Floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, Attn: Charles Vogel and Andrew Golembeski.
