PJM Interconnection has issued a System Impact Study, dated September 2015, on a 224.3-MW wind project in West Virginia that is backed by NextEra Energy Resources LLC.
This System Impact Study report provides the documentation of an assessment that has been performed by PJM and FirstEnergy in response to a request made by Nextera Energy Resources for the connection of a 224.3 MW (29 MW capacity) project to the William 138-kV substation, which is located in Tucker County, W.Va. The project has PJM queue number AA1-062.
“Nextera Energy Resources, LLC has submitted a ‘Form of Generation Interconnection Impact Study Agreement’ to PJM that identifies its plan to construct the William 138 kV (AA1-062) generation project with wind turbines,” the study noted. The direct connection of AA1-062 will be accomplished by connecting to the William 138-kV bus with a new breaker position. This project is on the transmission system of Monongahela Power, a FirstEnergy subsidiary.
