EDF Renewable Development Inc. has proposed a battery storage facility located in Blair County, Pa., that will have a total capability of 20 MW with 0 MW of this output being recognized by PJM Interconnection as capacity.
The proposed in-service date for this project is June 2016. This study does not imply a Pennsylvania Electric (Penelec) commitment to this in-service date, says a System Impact Study on the project from PJM. The study, dated September 2015, is needed 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 EDF.
This project, under PJM queue #AA1-115, will interconnect with the Penelec transmission system at the Thirty-First Street 115-kV substation. Project AA1-115 was studied with a commercial probability of 100% using a Summer Peak 2018 case. A map in the study shows that this project is near the 38-MW Chestnut Flats Wind Farm.
