PJM files interconnect deal for landfill gas power plant of Hoosier Energy

PJM Interconnection on Aug. 1 filed at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Interconnection Service Agreement with Hoosier Energy Rural Electric Cooperative and interconnecting transmission owner Commonwealth Edison for a landfill gas-fired power facility.

The Hoosier ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM transmission system of the Livingston Landfill Gas to Energy Facility, a 13.3-MW facility located in Pontiac, Illinois. The Hoosier ISA indicates that Hoosier shall have Capacity Interconnection Rights in the amount of 13.3 MW.

The Commercial Operation milestone date in the Hoosier ISA was left blank because the facility already is commercially operating and thus this milestone is not applicable.

The project is located at 14732 E 2100 North Road, Livingston County Pontiac, Illinois. It is made up of three Solar Turbine Taurus 60 biogas turbine packages.
