West Deptford Energy LLC has proposed a 20-MW energy only battery storage project to be constructed at the existing queue #Q90/#W4-015 generating facility in West Deptford, N.J.
PJM Interconnection said in a study dated September 2015 that it studied this new project, under queue #AA1-104, as a 20-MW injection into the Atlantic City Electric system at the Mickleton 230-kV substation and evaluated it for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2018. The planned in-service date is April 1, 2016.
The intent of this System Impact Study is 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 West Deptford Energy.
Project #AA1-104 will utilize the same Point of Interconnection as prior queue projects Q90/W4-015 at the Mickleton 230-kV Substation It is assumed that all required attachment facility work was completed as part of prior queue projects Q90/W4-015 so that no additional transmission owner work will be required for the AA1-104 project.
West Deptford Energy is an affiliate of LS Power, which says on its website that a 738-MW initial phase of this gas-fired power project is already developed, and a 400-MW gas-fired expansion is in development. Those projects are covered by the prior queue numbers.
