PJM works out revised deal for Virginia Electric’s newly-acquired solar project

PJM Interconnection on Feb. 25 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed interconnection service agreement with Virginia Electric and Power (called “Virginia Power-Generation”) as the new power project owner, and Virginia Electric and Power (known as “Virginia Power-Transmission”) as the interconnecting transmission owner.

This Virginia Power-Generation ISA has been amended to reflect the change in ownership of the generation facility. It supersedes the First Revised Service Agreement entered into among PJM, Morgans Corner Solar Energy LLC and Virginia Electric and Power. Morgans Corner Solar assigned its project to Virginia Power-Generation.

This project is under PJM Queue Position #Y1-086. The ISA calls for it to be commercially operating by Jan. 30 of this year.

It is still called the Morgan’s Corner Solar project, and is located on US HWY 158, Elizabeth City, Pasquotank County, N.C. The Maximum Facility Output is 20 MW. It is made up of nine SMA SUNNY CENTRAL 2200-US connected to 2.2-MW photovoltaic solar arrays.

Virginia Electric and Power, a subsidiary of Dominion Resources (NYSE: D), does business in North Carolina as Dominion North Carolina Power.

The North Carolina Utilities Commission in October 2015 approved the transfer to Dominion North Carolina Power of a December 2014 certificate of public convenience and necessity it had issued to Morgans Corner Solar Energy LLC. Morgans Corner is a third-tier subsidiary of Invenergy Clean Power LLC, which is an affiliate of Invenergy LLC.
