Salt Energy Group has proposed an 8.8-MW solar generating facility located at Funkstown in Washington County, Maryland, said PJM Interconnection in a September 2016 study on the project.
The installed facilities will have a total capability of 8.8 MW with 3.3 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is July 1, 2017. This study does not imply a Potomac Edison commitment to this in-service date.
From the transmission system perspective, no network impacts were identified. This project, under PJM queue #AB2-027, will interconnect with the Potomac Edison distribution system by tapping the Maple Avenue – Mt. Lena 34.5 kV (B1) line.
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 Salt Energy. It is a mid-point in a queue process that leads to an Interconnection Service Agreement. The project entered the queue on Feb. 10 of this year.
