PJM processes interconnect request for 6-MW solar project in Maryland

Legatus6 has proposed, under an October 2014 application, a 6 MWE (2.3 MWC; 6 MW MFO) solar facility to be located in Denton, Maryland.

PJM Interconnection said in a study dated March 2015 that it studied this project, under queue No. AA1-127, as a 6-MW injection into the Delmarva Power and Light (DPL) system at the Steele 25-kV substation and evaluated it for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2018. The planned in-service date, as stated in the Attachment N, is Aug. 1, 2016.

The intent of this Combined Feasibility/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 Legatus6.
