EDF pursues 60-MW wind project in Carbon County, Pa.

EDF Renewable Development LLC has proposed a wind facility located in Carbon County, Pa., that will have a total capability of 60 MW with 7.72 MW of this output being recognized by PJM Interconnection as capacity.

The proposed in-service date for this project is in December 2017. This study does not imply a PPL Electric Utilities (PPL EU) commitment to this in-service date, said PJM in a System Impact Study on the project dated September 2015. The study 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 queue #AA1-114, will interconnect with the PPL EU system along the Harwood-East Hazelton #2 69-kV line. It would consist of 30 Vestas V110 wind turbines.

This study is a mid-point in a PJM queue system that eventually culminates with an Interconnection Service Agreement.
