PJM revises wholesale deal for 16-MW N.J. solar project

PJM Interconnection on July 24 filed at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised Wholesale Market Participation Agreement for a 16-MW solar project in New Jersey.

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

The revised agreement, which alters an orginal version from 2012, covers the 16-MW Big Hill Solar Farm, located on Route 33 at Manalapan, New Jersey. The project will consist of solar photovoltaic panels connected to 1-MW inverters through 480 V / 34.5 kV step up transformers.

Under the agreement, on or before Dec. 31, 2014, S. Skeba Farms must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

The contact information is: S. Skeba Farms LLC, 11 Wycoff Mill-Applegarth Road, Monroe Township, NJ 08831, Attn: Stanley Skeba.
