PJM Interconnection filed on March 13 at 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,” the filing said. This WMPA supersedes a prior agreement with NJR Clean Energy Ventures Corp. and JCP&L. NJR Clean Energy Ventures Corp. assigned its project to NJR II. The NJR II WMPA is substantively the same as the prior version submitted to the commission in a 2014 docket, with some technical changes.
Under this version, as in the prior one, on or before Dec. 31, 2014, NJR must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units. The deal covers the Junction Road Solar Farm, located at 78 Junction Road, Flemington, New Jersey. This is a 6-MW, ground-mounted, inverter-based, photovoltaic facility consisting of solar arrays and a 34.5 kV collector system.
A developer contact is: NJR Clean Energy Ventures II Corp., 1415 Wyckoff Road, Wall, NJ 07719, Attn: Chris Savastano.
