The NextEra Energy Resources unit of NextEra Energy (NYSE: NEE) has proposed a 20-MW energy storage facility located in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
PJM Interconnection said in a June 2016 study on the project that the installed facilities will have a total capability of 20 MW with 0 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is December 2016. This study does not imply a Pennsylvania Electric (Penelec) commitment to this in-service date.
This project, under PJM queue #AA2-104, will interconnect with the Penelec transmission system at the Bigby 115-kV substation. Project AA2-104 was studied with a commercial probability of 100%.
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 NextEra. It is a mid-point in a PJM queue process that eventually leads to the signing of an Interconnection Service Agreement.
