Doswell LP pursues gas-fired power project in Virginia through PJM system

PJM Interconnection has issued a System Impact Study, dated September 2015, covering an application by Doswell LP to interconnect a 400-MW project to the Virginia Electric and Power Co. (VEPCO) system.

VEPCO is the Dominion (NYSE:D) regulated utility in Virginia.

The intent of the System Impact Study is to determine a plan, with approximate cost and construction time estimates, to connect the subject generation project to the PJM network at a location specified by Doswell LP.

Doswell has proposed a natural gas-fired combustion turbine generating facility located at 10098 Old Ridge Road in Ashland, Va. The installed facilities will have a total capability of 400 MW with 340 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is March 1, 2017. This study does not imply a VEPCO commitment to this in-service date. This project, under queue #AA1-145, will interconnect with the VEPCO system at the existing Four Rivers 230-kV substation bus.

Project AA1-145 was studied with a commercial probability of 100%. VEPCO assessed the impact of project #AA1-145’s interconnection of 340 MW of energy (Capacity 340 MW) at the existing Four Rivers plant for compliance with reliability criteria on its transmission system.
