West Deptford Energy LLC has proposed to PJM Interconnection a 74 MWE (74 MWC) upgrade to its prior queue projects Q90, W4-015, and W4-016 located in Gloucester County, New Jersey.
Said PJM in a March 2015 study covering this latest request: “The requested upgrade MWs will be attained without the need for additional generating equipment. The generating facility will have a combined output of 1270 MW Maximum Facility Output (MFO) and 1200 MW Capacity (MWC). The natural gas fueled generating facility will be arranged in a 2X1 and 1X1 combined cycle configuration.”
PJM studied this request, under queue No. Z2-083, as a 74 MW injection into the Atlantic City Electric system at the Mickleton 230-kV substation, the same delivery point as the prior three queue requests, and evaluated it for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2018. The proposed in-service date for the 74 MW uprate is June 1, 2017.
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 West Deptford Energy.
West Deptford Energy is an affiliate of LS Power, which says on its website that a 738-MW initial phase of the project is already developed, and a 400-MW expansion is in development.
