PJM works out wholesale deal for 18-MW Pa. gas project

PJM Interconnection on Aug. 5 filed at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement (WMPA) for an 18.3-MW project in Pennsylvania.

The July 7 agreement was entered into among PJM, Oxbow Creek Energy LLC and transmission owner Pennsylvania Electric (Penelec). “PJM is submitting this Agreement for filing because Oxbox Creek intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to Penelec’s distribution facilities,” PJM noted.

The agreement covers the Oxbow Creek Generation Plant, to be located at 213 Henry Holod Road at Factoryville, Pa. With a maximum facility output of 18.3 MW, this project will include natural gas-fired reciprocating engine-generator sets and related auxiliary systems and collection equipment.

Under the agreement, on or before June 1, 2015, Oxbow Creek Energy must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

A company contact is: Mark Brozina, Oxbow Creek Energy LLC, Suite 1603-A, Oxford Valley Road, Yardley, PA 19067-7716.
