Hill Top Energy Center LLC has proposed a natural gas-fired generating facility located approximately 2 miles north of Nemacolin in Greene County, Pennsylvania.
In a March 2016 study on the project, PJM Interconnection said the installed facilities will have a total capability of 515 MW with 515 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is Jan. 1, 2019. This study does not imply a West Penn Power commitment to this in-service date.
As for the Point of Interconnection (POI) for this project, which is under PJM queue #AA2-173, the connection from the West Penn Power transmission system to Hill Top Energy’s facilities will be provided by constructing a new 500-kV cross-bus at the Hatfield 500-kV Substation.
The intent of this Combined Feasibility/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 Hill Top Energy Center. This study is a mid-point in the PJM queue process.
