The Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) Office of Staff Counsel has proposed that the Longview Solar, LLC receive a certificate to construct a 15-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) generating facility (LS-Seabeach Solar Farm) in Worcester County, Maryland.
The PSC Office of Staff Counsel recommendation was based on several stipulations, including securing the interconnection agreement from and satisfying certain requirements from the PJM Interconnection (PJM) and the Federal Energy Regulation Commission (FERC).
The Maryland renewable portfolio standard (RPS) sets a target of 20% renewable power by 2022 with 2% being supplied by solar energy.
PSC staff official Mikhail Ratushny testified on behalf of a certificate of public convenience and necessity (CPCN) on March 29.
The PSC was scheduled to hold a hearing on the solar project at Snow Hill, Maryland on April 7.
The application has been docketed by the Maryland Public Service Commission as Case No. 9405.
