PJM revises wholesale deal for 15-MW New Jersey solar project

PJM Interconnection on May 30 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised Wholesale Market Participation Agreement for a 15-MW solar project in New Jersey.

The agreement, the original version of which dates back to 2012, was entered into among PJM, Franklin Solar W3-077 LLC and transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light (JCPL). “PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because Franklin Solar intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to JCPL’s distribution facilities,” the filing said.

The agreement covers the Franklin Township Solar Farm, located at 2305 State Route 57, Washington, N.J. The maximum facility output is 15 MW. This is a ground-mounted, inverter based, solar photovoltaic facility consisting of solar arrays and a 34-kV collector system.

Under the revised agreement, on or before Dec. 31, 2014, Franklin Solar must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

The project contact information is: Franklin Solar W3-077 LLC, 12 Wynwood Drive, West Windsor, NJ 08550, Attn: William Xu.
