PJM Interconnection on July 30 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised Wholesale Market Participation Agreement for a 3-MW solar project in New Jersey.

The agreement, which revises a deal dating back to 2012, was entered into among PJM, Syncarpha EFG I LLC and transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light“PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because Syncarpha intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to JCPL’s distribution facilities,” PJM noted.
