Great Bay Solar I LLC has proposed a 37.5 MW Capacity only (0 MWE/0 MW MFO) increase to its prior queue project X1-096 in Maryland.
The combined project is now a 150 MW (57 MW Capacity) resource. This project, under a newer queue #AA1-102, also converts the older #X1-096 project to a solar facility from wind, said PJM in a study on the project dated April 2015. The facility is located at the intersection of Charles Cannon Road and Lovers Lane in Marion Station, Maryland.
PJM studied AA1-102 as a 37.5 MW injection into the Delmarva Power and Light (DPL) system at the Kings Creek 138-kV Substation and evaluated it for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2018. Queue project AA1-102 was studied with a commercial probability of 100%. The planned in-service date is December 2016.
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 the Great Bay Solar I.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in December 2014 accepted a November 2014 filing by PJM of an executed interconnection service agreement with Pioneer Green Energy LLC and transmission owner DPL for project X1-096. This was called the Great Bay Wind Farm project, which would consist of forty-nine Vestas 112 wind turbines connected to a 138-kV high side step up transformer which is connected by a 138-kV cable to the Point of Interconnection on the Delmarva system.
