PJM revises agreement for 10-MW New Jersey solar project

PJM Interconnection on March 11 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised Wholesale Market Participation Agreement for a 10-MW solar project in New Jersey.

The agreement was entered into among PJM, Garden Solar LLC and transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light. “PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because Garden Solar intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to JCPL’s distribution facilities,” PJM noted.

The agreement covers the Hengst Solar Farm, located at 1059 Butler Park Road, Washington, N.J. The maximum facility output is 10 MW. The project consists of solar photovoltaic panels connected to 500 kW inverters through 480 V-34.5 kV step up transformers.

Under the WMPA, on or before Dec. 31, 2014, Garden Solar must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

The project contact is: Garden Solar LLC, 42562 Magellan Square, Ashburn, VA 20148-5612, Attn: Brian Fratus.
