PJM terminates wholesale deal for 17-MW New Jersey solar project

PJM Interconnection filed a Sept. 17 notice with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission about the cancellation of an executed Wholesale Market Participant Agreement (WMPA) for a 17-MW solar project in New Jersey.

The WMPA was entered into among PJM, NJ Sycamore Solar LLC and Jersey Central Power & Light, a FirstEnergy (NYSE: FE) company. The NJ Sycamore Solar WMPA was designated as Original Service Agreement No. 3344 filed with the commission in June 2012.

“The NJ Sycamore Solar WMPA is being cancelled because NJ Sycamore Solar has decided not to move forward with its project and will not participate in PJM’s markets,” said the Sept. 17 filing. “PJM is submitting this filing to notify the Commission that Original Service Agreement No. 3344 is to be cancelled effective as of September 16, 2013.”

Under the WMPA, the Flemington Solar Farm project had been due for commercial operation by the end of 2014. The project location was Cherryville Road, Flemington, N.J. It was to be a ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic generating facility consisting of solar arrays and a 34-kV collector system.

The contact information for the developer is: NJ Sycamore Solar LLC c/o Lincoln Renewable Energy LLC, 401 N. Michigan Ave., Suite 501,
Chicago, IL 60611, Attn: Chris McKissack.
