Millsboro Solar works at PJM on interconnect for 20-MW project in Delaware

Millsboro Solar LLC has proposed a 20 MW MFO (14 MWC) solar facility to be located in Frankford, Delaware, said PJM Interconnection in a September 2016 study on the project.

PJM studied this project, under queue #AB1-137, as a 20-MW injection into the Delmarva Power and Light system at the Frankford 25-kV Substation and evaluated it for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2019. The planned in-service date, as requested by Millsboro Solar during the project kick-off call, is Nov. 1, 2016. This date is not attainable due to the need for additional studies and transmission owner construction schedules, the study noted.

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 Millsboro Solar. It is a mid-point in the queue process.
