PJM files revised interconnect deal for 80-MW solar project in Virginia

PJM Interconnection on May 28 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised interconnection service agreement (ISA) with Eastern Shore Solar LLC and transmission owner Delmarva Power and Light for an 80-MW solar project in Virginia.

The Eastern Shore ISA supersedes the ISA entered into among PJM, Eastern Shore and Delmarva Power, effective Sept. 18, 2014, filed with and accepted by the commission. PJM requests an effective date of April 28 for the revised Eastern Shore ISA. The project site is in Accomack County, which is on the Virginia end of the Delmarva Peninsula, very near the Maryland state line.

The Eastern Shore ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM transmission system of 80 MW at four generating units (consisting of 20 MW for Oak Hall Project A, 20 MW for Oak Hall Project B, 20 MW for Oak Hall Project C and 20 MW for Oak Hall Project D). The ISA indicates that Eastern Shore shall have capacity interconnection rights (CIRs) in the amount of 61.99 MW (consisting of 15.498 MW for Oak Hall Project A, 15.498 for Oak Hall Project B, 15.498 for Oak Hall Project C and 15.498 for Oak Hall Project D).

Among the changes made from the prior ISA is that the new one includes new queue positions (Z1-103, AA1-025, AA1-026, AA1-027 and AA1-028) for the same generating units. Under the new ISA, on or before June 30, 2016, Eastern Shore must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.
