PJM files revised wholesale deal for 17-MW New Jersey solar project

PJM Interconnection on March 23 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with NJR Clean Energy Ventures II Corp. and transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light.

“PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because NJR II intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to JCP&L’s distribution facilities,” said the filing. This deal supersedes an original agreement from 2014 entered into among PJM, NJR Clean Energy Ventures Corp. and JCP&L. NJR Clean Energy Ventures Corp. assigned its project to NJR II.

Under this deal, on or before December 31, 2014, the developer must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units. This is for the 17-MW Howell Solar Farm, located on Fairfield Road in Howell Township, New Jersey.

A project contact is: NJR Clean Energy Ventures II Corp., 1415 Wyckoff Road, Wall, NJ 07719, Attn: Chris Savastano, Director-Development.
