Whitely Battery Storage LLC has proposed a battery storage generating facility located at a point adjacent to West Penn Power‘s Whitely substation in Greene County, Pa., said a September 2016 study on the project from PJM Interconnection.
The installed facilities will have a total capability of 20 MW with 0 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is May 31, 2017. This study does not imply a West Penn Power commitment to this in-service date.
Attachment facilities and local upgrades (if required) along with terms and conditions to interconnect this project, under queue #AB1-164, will be specified in a separate two party Interconnection Agreement (IA) between West Penn Power and Whitely Battery Storage, as this project is considered FERC non-jurisdictional per the PJM Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT). From the transmission system perspective, no network impacts were identified.
AB1-164 will interconnect with the West Penn Power distribution system by building a new 25-kV terminal at the Whiteley Substation near Polecat Hollow Rd, Garards Fort, Pa.
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 the project developer. It is a mid-point in the PJM queue process.
