Waymart Wind Farm LP has proposed to add batteries to an existing wind generating facility in Wayne County, Pennsylvania.
PJM Interconnection said in a study dated March 2015 that this April 2014 request covers an increase to the installed capability of 20 MW, with 0 MW of this extra output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The installed facilities will have a total capability of 84.5 MW with 10.1 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this battery project is December 2015.
This study does not imply a PPL Electric Utilities (PPL EU) commitment to this in-service date, the study added. PPL EU is the interconnecting transmission owner. This project, under queue No. Z2-107, will interconnect with the PPL EU transmission system along the East Carbondale-Lackawanna 69-kV line. The Z2-107 project will utilize the existing connection to PPL EU’s 69-kV transmission system through the Brownell Tap line.
The intent of this System Impact Study 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 Waymart.
