The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Jan. 15 accepted a Dec. 18 filing by PJM Interconnection of an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with Syncarpha Mount Olive LLC and transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light for a 17-MW solar project.
“PJM states that it is submitting this WMPA for filing because Syncarpha intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to JCPL’s distribution facilities,” FERC noted. This version of the WMPA replaces one from December 2012. Under this agreement, on or before Dec. 31, 2015, Syncarpha must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.
This deal covers the Mount Olive Solar Farm, to be located at 149 Gold Mine Road in Budd Lake, New Jersey. This is a 17-MW, ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic facility consisting of solar arrays and a 34-kV collector system.
