ICC Approves ComEd's Grand Prairie Gateway Project
Oct 22 14
The Illinois Commerce Commission announced it has approved Commonwealth Edison Company's (ComEd) Grand Prairie Gateway Project, a new transmission line that will extend for 60 miles across Ogle, Dekalb, Kane and DuPage Counties. The new line will create immediate customer savings by reducing grid congestion, increasing customers' access to lower-cost generation, including wind power, and will reduce carbon emissions by 473,000 tons over 15 years. Construction is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of next year and the line is expected to be in service in 2017. The line will expand ComEd customers' access to generation by approximately 1,000 megawatts, providing greater access to clean energy. The 345,000 volt (345kV) electric transmission line will be constructed between ComEd's existing substations near the communities of Byron and Wayne. The route would begin at the Byron substation and run east until east of Plato Center in Kane County, where the line would run southeast along railroad corridors to the substation near Wayne. The project adds a third major transmission path across the ComEd territory, which also enhances reliability, particularly during extreme weather events. The need for the Project was first identified as part of the annual regional planning process managed by PJM, the independent Regional Transmission Organization that plans and operates the ComEd transmission system. PJM is responsible for ensuring that the competitive wholesale market operates appropriately and fairly for customers and it's regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
