PJM files revised wholesale deal with FERC for 8-MW N.J. solar project

PJM Interconnection on Nov. 21 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation with Mohawk Associates LLC and Jersey Central Power & Light.

“PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because Mohawk intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to JCPL’s distribution facilities,” PJM noted.

This agreement, which is a revision of an agreement originally worked out in 2011, covers the Roy Road Solar Farm project, located at 34 Roy Road at Augusta, New Jersey. This 8-MW project is made up of photovoltaic solar panels connected to inverters in 1 MW groups. Eight inverters are connected to a single 480V/34.5 kV step-up transformer.

Under the revised and original agreements, Mohawk Associates, on or before Sept. 1, 2014, must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

The contact for the project is: Mohawk Associates LLC, 47 Woodport Road, Sparta, NJ 07871, Attn: Louis Webber.
