PJM files wholesale deal for 2-MW solar project in New Jersey

PJM Interconnection on Sept. 24 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement for a 2-MW solar project in New Jersey.

The agreement is among PJM, Marina Energy LLC and transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light. PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because Marina Energy intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to JCP&L’s distribution facilities.

This agreement supersedes a 2013 agreement entered into among PJM, Brickyard LLC and JCP&L. Brickyard has assigned its project to Marina Energy.

This is for the Skudera Solar Farm project, located at 100 Birdsall Road, Farmingdale, New Jersey. This 2-MW facility is a ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic project consisting of solar arrays and a 34 kV collector system.

Under the wholesale agreement, on or before Sept. 30, 2015, Marina Energy must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

A project contact is: Marina Energy LLC, One North White Horse Pike, Hammonton, NJ 08037, Attn: Theodore Pettinelli.
