Solar Access Development Group LLC has proposed a 10-MW solar facility with an interconnection service point located near the Shoreline Drive and Honeycreek Road intersection on the south side of Honeycreek Road at Thornville, Ohio.
A PjM Interconnection study on the project, dated February 2016, said the Solar Access project will be served from the American Electric Power distribution system via the Thornville Station. A site electrical one line will need to be provided for detailed engineering and design should the customer enter into a Wholesale Market Participation Agreement (WMPA), the study noted.
This project, under queue #AB1-174, was studied as a 10 MW (Capacity 6.6 MW) injection at the Thornville 69 kV substation. Project AB1-174 was evaluated for compliance with applicable reliability planning criteria (PJM, NERC, NERC Regional Reliability Councils, and Transmission Owners). It was studied with a commercial probability of 100%.
The intent of this 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 Solar Access.
