PJM works on interconnecting 20-MW Charles City Solar project in Virginia

Charles City Solar LLC has proposed a solar generating facility located in Charles City, Virginia, said PJM Interconnection in a December 2016 study on the project.

The installed facilities will have a total capability of 20 MW with 14 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project was Nov. 1, 2016. This study does not imply a Virginia Electric and Power, the interconnecting transmission owner, commitment to this in-service date. This project, under PJM queue #AB1-135, will interconnect with the Virginia Electric distribution system via a tap onto a 34.5kV circuit fed out of the Chickahominy Substation.

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 Charles City Solar. The study doesn’t have any background information on the project developer.
