Middlesex Energy Center LLC has proposed a natural gas-fired generating facility located in Middlesex County, N.J., that will have a total capability of 560 MW with 560 MW of this output being recognized by PJM Interconnection as capacity.
PJM, in a System Impact Study for this project dated September 2015, said the 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 the developer.
The proposed in-service date for this project is in May 2018. This study does not imply a Jersey Central Power & Light (JCPL) commitment to this in-service date, the study noted. This project, under queue #AA1-098, will interconnect with the JCPL transmission system along the Raritan River-Red Oak 230-kV line. A map in the study shows the Middlesex Energy Center would be located just west of the Red Oak Power Plant.
This study is a mid-point in a queue process that will eventually lead to the working out of an Interconnection Service Agreement. The study doesn’t give any background on the project company.
