Dominion’s new Pleasant View-Goose Creek 500 kV line will be designated as line number 595.
Dominion is building a 500kV ring bus substation, Goose Greek, to install a 150 MVAR capacitor bank. The Doubs-Pleasant View and Pleasant View-Brambleton circuits will terminate at the Goose Creek station.
The project (PJM baseline upgrade b1799) is designed to correct NERC category C3 N-1-1 voltage violations, with completion targeted for spring 2014.
The Doubs–Goose Creek line will keep the 543 line designation while the Goose Creek–Brambleton (Loudoun) line will keep the 558 identifier.
