FERC accepts end to PJM deal for 40-MW EDF battery project in Illinois

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Oct. 31 accepted a Sept. 30 notice from PJM Interconnection of the cancellation of an executed Interconnection Construction Service Agreement (CSA) with EDF Renewable Development Inc. and interconnecting transmission owner Commonwealth Edison.

“The EDF Renewable CSA is being cancelled because EDF Renewable has decided not to move forward with its project and will not participate in PJM’s markets,” PJM explained. PJM had filed the CSA with FERC on July 5.

The project had PJM Queue Positions #AA1-116 and #AA1-117. It was the Kensington Avenue Battery Storage project, to have been located in Kankakee County, Illinois.  Each of the two queue positions represented 20 MW of battery storage capacity. The interconnecting substation was named TSS 199 Kensington Ave. 

A project contact is: EDF Renewable Development Inc. c/o EDF Renewable Energy, Attn: Sylvia Gibson, Generation Manager, 15445 Innovation Drive, San Diego, CA 92128.
