Casper Solar Center LLC has proposed a 16.7 MW MFO (6.34 MWC) solar facility to be located in Church Hill, Maryland, said PJM Interconnection in a September 2016 study on the project.
PJM studied this project, under queue #AB1-162, as a 16.7 MW injection into the Delmarva Power and Light (DPL) system and evaluated it for compliance with reliability criteria for summer peak conditions in 2019. The planned in-service date, as requested by the project developer during the kick-off call, is July 1, 2017. “This date is not attainable due to the need for additional studies and the Transmission Owner construction schedule,” the study noted.
AB1-162 will require a Point of Interconnection (POI) off DPL’s 69-kV Price Substation in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland. A POI at Price Substation will require the expansion of the 69-kV bus to a ring bus configuration with a total of four terminals (two terminals for Circuit 6710, one terminal for Price T1, and one terminal for AB1-162).
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 Casper Solar Center. The study is a mid-point in the PJM queue process.
