EDF Renewable works with PJM on 52-MW wind project in Pennsylvania

EDF Renewable Development Inc. has proposed to PJM Interconnection a wind generating facility located in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

The installed facilities will have a total capability of 52 MW with 6.7 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity, said PJM in a study dated March 2015. The proposed in-service date for this project is December 2016. This study does not imply a PPL Electric Utilities (PPL EU), as interconnecting transmission owner, commitment to this in-service date.

This project, under PJM queue No. Z2-009, will interconnect with the PPL EU transmission system along the East Hazelton-Harwood 69-kV line.

The intent of the 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 EDF. This study is a mid-point in the queue process, which eventually leads to an Interconnection Service Agreement.
