Pivotal Power works with PJM on 9.9-MW solar project in Maryland

Pivotal Power Solutions Inc. has proposed a solar generating facility located 536 Green Valley Road, Union Bridge, Carroll County, Maryland.

PJM Interconnection said in a March 2016 study on the project that the installed facilities will have a capability of 9.9 MW with 3.8 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity.

The proposed in-service date for the project, which is under queue #AB1-078, is Nov. 1, 2016. This study does not imply a Potomac Edison commitment to this in-service date. AB1-096 will interconnect with the utility’s transmission system by tapping onto the 34.5 KV line between the Carroll and Mt. Airy substations.

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 the project developer. This is a mid-point in a queue process that culminates with an Interconnection Service Agreement.
