Franklin DG pursues 20-MW, gas-fired project in Pennsylvania at PJM

Franklin DG LLC has proposed a natural gas-fired generating facility located in Waynesburg, Pa., with a total capability of 20 MW with 20 MW of this output being recognized by PJM Interconnection as capacity.

PJM said in a September 2016 study on the project that the proposed in-service date is Dec. 31, 2016. This study does not imply a West Penn Power commitment to this in-service date. This project, under queue #AB1-171, will connect with the West Penn Power distribution system through direct injection into the Franklin substation 25-kV bus.

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 Franklin DG. It is a mid-point in the PJM queue process.
