Maryland PSC nears final decision on 20-MW Todd Solar project

A Public Utility Law Judge at the Maryland Public Service Commission on June 27 issued a proposed approval for the 20-MW (ac) Todd Solar LLC project, which will become a final commission approval on July 28 if no party has objected to it by then.

Todd Solar is a wholly owned subsidiary of Invenergy Solar Development LLC, whose home office is located in Chicago, Illinois. Invenergy Solar develops, owns, and operates power generation and energy storage facilities throughout North America and Europe.

Todd Solar last December applied for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) to construct a 20-MW solar facility, which will include approximately 85,000 solar panels installed on a fixed rack oriented east to west with a tilt of 25 degrees in order to allow for more installed capacity and higher annual yield.

The project site will be located on a portion of a 143-acre parcel about 2 miles southeast of the Town of Hurlock in Dorchester County, Maryland, and about 1 mile southeast of Delmarva Power & Light‘s Todd Substation, the project’s interconnection point. Todd Solar has a PJM Interconnection generator interconnection queue number of X3-008, having submitted an interconnection request to PJM in August 2011.
