PJM works on interconnect for 175-MW, gas-fired project in New Jersey

Melrose Power Plant LLC has proposed a natural gas-fired generating facility located in Middlesex County, New Jersey, said PJM Interconnection in a study on the project dated April 2016.

The installed combustion turbine facilities will have a total capability of 175 MW with 70 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 Jersey Central Power & Light (JCPL) commitment to this in-service date.

This project, under PJM queue #AA2-128, will interconnect with the JCPL transmission system along the Raritan River-Werner 115-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 power project developer. It is a mid-point in the PJM queue system.
