PJM Interconnection has issued a May 2016 System Impact Study looking at a 20-MW solar project of O2 emc LLC that would interconnect with the Virginia Electric and Power d/b/a Dominion North Carolina Power system.

O2 emc has proposed a solar facility located on Highway 301 in Enfield Township in Halifax County, N.C. The installed facilities will have a total capability of 20 MW with 13.7 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity.

The proposed in-service date for this project is June 1, 2016. This study does not imply a Virginia Electric commitment to this in-service date.

This project, under queue #AA2-068, will interconnect with the Virginia Electric transmission system via the utility's South Justice 115-kV substation which feeds through Halifax Electric Membership Corp. This study is a mid-point in the queue process.

The proposed in-service date for this second project is June 1, 2016. This study does not imply a Virginia Electric commitment to this in-service date.
