Dan’s Mountain Solar pursues PJM deal for Maryland project

Dan’s Mountain Solar LLC has submitted a “Form of Generation Interconnection Impact Study Agreement” to PJM Interconnection that identifies its plan to construct the Frostburg–Ridgeley 138 kV (queue No. Z2-038) generation project in Maryland with photovoltaic solar cells.

The installed facilities will have a total generating capability of 19.9 MW, of which 7.6 MW will be recognized by PJM as a capacity resource, said PJM in a study on the project dated March 2015. The proposed point of interconnection (POI) for the Z2-038 project will be located on the Frostburg–Ridgeley 138 kV line.

This System Impact Study Report provides the documentation of an assessment that has been performed on behalf of interconnecting transmission owner Potomac Edison in response to a request made by Dan’s Mountain Solar. This study is a mid-point in a queue process that eventually leads to an Interconnection Service Agreement. This project entered the queue in February 2014.
