PJM revises agreement for 17-MW New Jersey solar project

PJM Interconnection on May 23 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised Wholesale Market Participation Agreement (WMPA) with Greenwich Solar W3-076 LLC and transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light (JCPL).

“PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because Greenwich Solar intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to JCPL’s distribution facilities,” PJM noted.

The revised agreement covers the 17-MW South Main Street Solar Farm, located at Stewartsville, N.J. This is a ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic facility consisting of solar arrays and a 34-kV collector system.

Under the agreement, on or before Dec. 31, 2014, the project developer must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

Project contact information is: Greenwich Solar W3-076 LLC, 12 Wynwood Drive, West Windsor, NJ 08550, Attn: William Xu.
