PJM files revised wholesale deals for 10-MW N.J. solar projects

PJM Interconnection on July 24 filed a revised Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for a 10-MW solar project in New Jersey.

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

This agreement covers the 10-MW Quakertown Solar Farm #1 project in Franklin Township, New Jersey. This will be 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, Quakertown Farms must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

The contact information for the developer is: Quakertown Farms LLC, PO Box 370, Quakertown, NJ 08868, Attn: Scott Acker.

PJM also on July 24 filed with the commission a revised WMPA with Quakertown Farms for the 10-MW Quakertown Solar Farm #2 project, located in Franklin Township, N.J. This is also a ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic facility consisting of solar arrays and a 34 kV collector system. On or before Dec. 31, 2014, the company must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.
