Invenergy pursues 122-MW West Virginia wind project in PJM’s queue process

Invenergy Wind Development LLC has proposed a wind generating facility located approximately one mile from the existing 138-kV Baker Substation in Hardy County, West Virginia, said a September 2016 study on the project from PJM Interconnection.

The installed facilities will have a total capability of 121.6 MW with 15.8 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is Dec. 31, 2018. This study does not imply a Potomac Edison commitment to this in-service date. This project, under PJM queue #AB1-149, will interconnect with the Potomac Edison transmission system through direct injection into the Baker substation 138-kV bus.

The facility would consist of 38 General Electric 3.2-MW wind turbines. 

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