Duke Energy Beckjord Storage LLC has proposed a battery storage generating facility located inside the Beckjord Substation in New Richmond, Ohio, said a study on the project from PJM Interconnection dated August 2016.
The installed facilities will have a total capability of 19.8 MW with 0 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is March 31, 2017. This study does not imply a Duke Energy Ohio commitment to this in-service date. This project, under PJM queue #AB2-178, will interconnect with the Duke Energy Ohio transmission system at the take-off structure between busses 5 and 6 inside the Beckjord Substation.
Based on the extent of attachment facilities connection upgrades required to support this project, it is expected to take a minimum of 26 months from the date of a fully executed Interconnection Construction Service Agreement to complete the installation required for the Beckjord 138 kV (AB2-178) Project, PJM noted.
The intent of this Combined Feasibility and 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 the project developer.
