PJM files revision for uprated Calpine plant in Pennsylvania

PJM Interconnection on Dec. 18 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Interconnection Service Agreement and Interconnection Construction Service Agreement with Calpine Mid-Merit LLC and transmission owner PECO Energy

The Calpine ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM transmission system of an uprate of the Delta York facility in York County, Pennsylvania. This facility consists of Delta York #1, a combined cycle facility with a Maximum Facility Output of 575 MW, and Delta York #2, a combined cycle facility with a Maximum Facility Output of 880 MW, for a combined Maximum Facility Output of 1,455 MW.

The facility’s stated size represents an increase in Maximum Facility Output of 120 MW over Calpine’s previous interconnection request. The Calpine ISA includes revisions to Original Service Agreement to reflect: an increase in the Maximum Facility Output of Delta York #2 from 760 MW to 880 MW and a corresponding increase to the combined Maximum Facility Output of this plant.

Under this ISA, on or before June 1, 2017, Calpine must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.
