PJM Interconnection on July 18 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed interconnection service agreement (ISA) for a 348-MW wind project offshore of New Jersey.

The ISA, and an executed interconnection construction service agreement (CSA), are among PJM, OffshoreMW LLC and transmission owner Atlantic City Electric.

The OffshoreMW agreements facilitate the interconnection to the PJM system of a 348-MW facility located approximately 20 miles offshore of Atlantic City, N.J. The OffshoreMW ISA indicates that OffshoreMW will have Capacity Interconnection Rights in the amount of 45 MW.

This is called the New Jersey Offshore Wind Project. The project area is in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 20 miles east-northeast of Atlantic City. It would consist of sixty 6-MW wind turbines connected to two 34.5/230-kV step up transformers located on a platform in the Atlantic Ocean and connected by 230-kV cable to the onshore Point of Interconnection.

The project contact is: OffshoreMW LLC, 367 Herrontown Road, Princeton, NJ 08540, Attn: Erich Stephens.
