Gateway Cogeneration 1 LLC has proposed a 163-MW, natural gas-fired generating facility located in Bradford County, Pa., said PJM Interconnection in a study on the project dated November 2015.
The installed facilities will have a total capability of 163 MW with 163 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is December 2017. This study does not imply a Pennsylvania Electric (Penelec) commitment to this in-service date. Penelec would be the interconnecting transmission owner.
This project, under PJM queue #AA1-144, would interconnect with the Penelec transmission system along the East Towanda-Grover 230-kV line. AA1-144 consists of two combined cycle units, each made up of a 68.5-MW combustion turbine and 14-MW steam turbine.
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 Gateway Cogeneration 1. The study is a mid-point in a PJM queue system that eventually leads to the signing of an Interconnection Service Agreement. The project entered the queue in October 2014.
