FERC accepts end of wholesale deal for New Jersey solar project

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Aug. 30 accepted a termination notice from PJM Interconnection about the cancellation of a Wholesale Market Participant Agreement (WMPA) for a long-delayed, 5-MW solar project in New Jersey.

The April 2011 WMPA had been entered into among PJM, Syncarpha Burlington LLC and Public Service Electric and Gas. “The Syncarpha WMPA is being cancelled because Syncarpha failed to cure its breach of the milestones in the WMPA, resulting in Syncarpha being in default of the WMPA,” said PJM in the Aug. 2 notice.

The facility covered by the now-terminated WMPA was called the “1900 River Road” facility, to be located on 
1900 River Road, Burlington, Burlington County, N.J. The maximum facility output was to be 5 MW, consisting of Yingli solar panels. The WMPA called for full commercial operation by Nov. 30, 2011.
