PJM issues studies on 19.9-MW IMG Development projects in Pennsylvania

IMG Development LLC has proposed a natural gas-fired generating facility located in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, said a study on the project from PJM Interconnection dated June 2016.

The installed facilities will have a total capability of 19.9 MW with 19.9 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. A diagram in the study shows the project is made up of three 6.65-MW units.

The proposed in-service date for this project is June 2017. This study does not imply a Pennsylvania Electric (Penelec) commitment to this in-service date. This project, under queue #AA2-112, will interconnect with the Penelec system from a circuit fed from the Tiffany 34-kV substation. Project AA2-112 was studied with a commercial probability of 100%.

PJM also did other June 2016 studies on IMG projects:

  • IMG Development has proposed a natural gas generating facility in Susquehanna County, Pa. The installed facilities will have a total capability of 19.9 MW with 19.9 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 Penelec commitment to this in-service date. Project #AA2-132 will interconnect with the Penelec system to a circuit fed from the Thompson 34.5-kV substation.
  • IMG Development has proposed a natural gas generating facility located in Lawrence County, Pa. The installed facilities will have a total capability of 19.9 MW with 19.9 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is June 1, 2017. This study does not imply a ATSI commitment to this in-service date. Project #AA2-166 will interconnect with the ATSI system along the Cedar Street-Union 69-kV line.
  • IMG Development has proposed a natural gas generating facility located in Bradford County, Pa. The installed facilities will have a total capability of 19.9 MW with 19.9 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is June 1, 2017. This study does not imply a Penelec commitment to this in-service date. Project #AA2-167 will interconnect with the Penelec system to a circuit fed from the East Sayre 34.5-kV substation.

The intent of these System Impact Studies 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 IMG Development. This kind of study is a mid-point in a queue process that leads eventually to an Interconnection Service Agreement.
