PJM Interconnection has issued a September 2016 System Impact Study on a wind project of RES Americas Development Inc., with Virginia Electric and Power Co. (VEPCO) as the interconnecting utility.
The intent of the 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 RES Americas.
RES Americas has proposed a wind generating facility located northwest of Colombia in Tyrell County, North Carolina. The installed facilities will have a total capability of 130 MW with 16.9 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is Dec. 30, 2016. This study does not imply a VEPCO commitment to this in-service date.
The project, under queue #AB1-013, will interconnect with the VEPCO transmission system as a tap onto the Riders Creek 115-kV substation bus.
