PJM files wholesale deal for 3-MW solar project in New Jersey

PJM Interconnection filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Nov. 4 an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with 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 JCPL’s distribution facilities,” PJM wrote. This deal supersedes a 2012 agreement that had been entered into among PJM, prior project developer Garden Solar LLC and JCPL.

The agreement covers the Wetteland Solar Farm project located on Spring Mills Road, Holland, New Jersey. This 3-MW project is to be made up of photovoltaic solar panels connected to inverters in 500 kW groups.

Under the new agreement, on or before Dec. 31, 2014, 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: Thomas Pettinelli.
