PJM works out market agreement with 18-MW N.J. solar project

PJM Interconnection on Nov. 4 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement (WMPA) for an 18-MW solar project in New Jersey that is due for commercial operation in 2016.

The agreement is among PJM, project developer Quinton Solar Energy 1 LLC and Atlantic City Electric as the transmission owner. PJM submitted this agreement for filing because Quinton Solar intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to Atlantic City Electric distribution facilities.

This is called the Quinton Project, to be located at Route 77 and Jefferson Road, Upper Pittsgrove Township, Salem County, N.J. The maximum facility output is 18 MW. It will be a ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic facility consisting of solar arrays and a 480/12kV collector system.

Commercial operation of this project is due under the agreement on or before Nov. 30, 2016.

The developer contact is: Quinton Solar Energy 1 LLC 
c/o Invenergy Solar Development LLC, 1 South Wacker Drive, Suite 1900 Chicago, IL 60614, 
Attn: General Counsel.
