PJM files new interconnect deal for PSEG’s uprated Bergen plant

PJM Interconnection on Nov. 30 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Interconnection Service Agreement (ISA) with PSEG Fossil LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) covering an uprated Bergen plant.

Both PSEG Fossil and PSE&G are subsidiaries of Public Service Enterprise Group (NYSE: PEG).

This ISA supersedes a prior one for this facility. The new PSEG Fossil ISA facilitates the interconnection of the Bergen Generating Station, a generating facility with a Maximum Facility Output of 1,320 MW located in Ridgefield, New Jersey. The Bergen station currently consists of Unit 1, having a Maximum Facility Output of 685 MW, and Unit 2, having a Maximum Facility Output of 635 MW. The Maximum Facility Output of 1,320 MW represents an increase of 85 MW for Units 1 and 2 over the prior interconnection.

Public Service Enterprise Group, in its Oct. 30 quarterly Form 10-Q report, said (without elaborating) that in 2015 it completed installation of equipment to increase output and improve efficiency at the Bergen 2 combined cycle gas unit similar to a 2014 installation at its Linden plant.
