180-MW UGI project in Pennsylvania advances in the PJM queue process

UGI Development Co. has proposed a natural gas-fired generating facility located Luzerne County, Pa., said PJM Interconnection in the latest study on the project, dated March 2016.

The installed facilities will have a total capability of 180 MW with 180 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is June 2017. This study does not imply a UGI commitment to this in-service date.

This project, under PJM queue #AA1-036, will interconnect with the UGI transmission system along the Mountain-Susquehanna 230-kV line.

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 the UGI. The prior study on the project was dated November 2015. These studies are mid-points in a PJM process that culminates with an Interconnection Service Agreement.
