Smart Energy Development Inc. has proposed a battery storage facility located in Hunterdon, New Jersey, said an October 2016 study on the project from PJM Interconnection.
The installed facilities will have a total capability of 16 MW with 0.0 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is in June 2018. This study does not imply a Jersey Central Power & Light (JCPL) commitment to this in-service date. This project, under PJM queue #AB2-127, will interconnect with the JCPL system from the Gilbert 34.5-kV substation.
Based on the extent of the JCP&L primary direct connection required to support the AB2-127 generation project, it is expected to take a minimum of 12 months from the date of a fully executed Interconnection Construction Service Agreement to complete the installation.
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 Smart Energy.
