Renovo pursues PJM approval for 463-MW, gas-fired project in Pennsylvania

Renovo Energy Center LLC is moving through the PJM Interconnection queue process for a 463-MW, gas-fired project in Pennsylvania, with PJM this month issuing a major study on the project.

Renovo has proposed a natural gas generating facility located in Clinton County, Pa. The installed facilities will have a total capability of 463 MW with 463 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity.

The proposed in-service date for this project is October 2019. This PJM study does not imply a Pennsylvania Electric Co. (Penelec) commitment to this in-service date. Project #AA1-111 will interconnect with the Penelec transmission system along the Moshannon-East Towanda 230-kV line.

Based on the scope of the direct connection, it is expected to take a minimum of 20 months from the signing of an Interconnection Connection Service Agreement to complete the grid support installations required for the project.

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 project developer. It is a mid-point in the PJM queue process.
