PJM revises wholesale deals for New Jersey solar projects

PJM Interconnection on Aug. 18 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revision of a 2012 Wholesale Market Participation Agreement for a 12-MW solar project in New Jersey.

The agreement was entered into among PJM, Warfield Bros. J.V. and transmission owner Public Service Electric and Gas (PSEG). “PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because Warfield intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to PSEG’s distribution facilities,” PJM noted.

Under this revised agreement, on or before Oct. 15, 2015, Warfield Bros. J.V. must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units. The old commercial operation deadline under the 2012 version of the agreement was May 31, 2013.

This is called the Warfield I project, to be located at 315 Red Lion Road, Southampton Township, N.J. It will consist of twelve 1-MW inverters and sufficient solar panels to produce a maximum of 12 MW.

Also on Aug. 18, PJM filed a revised WMPA with Warfield Bros. J.V. for the Warfield II project, which has a new commercial operation deadline of Oct. 1, 2015. This is a 20-MW project located at 1967 Route 206, Southampton, Burlington County, N.J. 

The contact information for the developer in both cases is: Warfield Bros. J.V., 14451 Triadelphia Road, Glenelg, MD 21737, Attn: Kennard Warfield Jr.
