PJM files new interconnect deal for uprated LaSalle nuclear plant

PJM Interconnection on June 22 filed at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission submits  an executed Interconnection Service Agreement (ISA) with Exelon Generating Co. LLC (ExGen) and transmission owner Commonwealth Edison that covers an uprate of capacity at a nuclear power plant in Illinois.

This replaces an interim ISA between the parties.

“The ExGen ISA facilitates the interconnection of an increase in capacity of the LaSalle Nuclear Units 1 and 2, located in Marseilles, Illinois,” said the filing. “The Maximum Facility Output (‘MFO’) of the Customer Facility associated with the ExGen ISA is 2,379 MW, comprised of an MFO for Unit 1 of 1188 MW, and an MFO of 1191 MW for Unit 2. This represents an increase in the MFO of 20 MW at Unit 1, and an increase in the MFO at Unit 20 MW at Unit 2, over ExGen’s prior interconnection.

“The ExGen ISA indicates that Unit 1 will have 1135.5 MW of Capacity Interconnection Rights, consisting of 1123.6 MW associated with its prior interconnection, plus an additional 11.9 MW as a result of the ExGen ISA. Unit 2 will have 1136.4 MW of Capacity Interconnection Rights, consisting of 1125.5 MW associated with its prior interconnection, plus an additional 10.9 MW as a result of the ExGen ISA.”
