PJM does deal with United Refining on Pennsylvania power project

PJM Interconnection filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Feb. 12 an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with United Refining Co. (URC) and transmission owner Pennsylvania Electric covering a 29-MW power project in Pennsylvania.

“PJM is submitting this Agreement for filing because URC intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to Penelec’s distribution facilities,” said PJM.

Under this agreement, on or before Jan. 1, 2018, United Refining must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

This covers the United Refining Company Oil Refinery on Dobson Avenue in Warren, Pa. The project will have a maximum facility output of 29 MW. It is described in the WMPA as: “Combustion Turbine Generator set, 13.8kV/34.5 kV GSU and 34.5 kV line to FirstEnergy Elm Street substation, serving refinery load with net output to FE distribution system of 29 MW.”

The developer contact is: United Refining Co., 15 Bradley St. Warren, PA 16365, Attn: David Dorn.
