PJM files revised interconnect deal for PBF Power Marketing in Delaware

PJM Interconnection on May 4 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised interconnection service agreement with PBF Power Marketing LLC and transmission owner Delmarva Power and Light (DPL).

The PBF Power Marketing ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM system of a 252-MW generating facility located in Delaware City, Delaware. The PBF Power Marketing ISA indicates that PBF Power Marketing shall have Capacity Interconnection Rights in the amount of 189.1 MW consisting of 179.1 MW that PBF Power Marketing had at the Point of Interconnection prior to the interconnection request associated with the PBF Power Marketing ISA and 10 MW associated with the interconnection request resulting in the PBF Power Marketing ISA.

The PBF Power Marketing ISA includes revisions to First Revised Service Agreement No. 3665 to reflect: the queue number that corresponds to the interconnection request associated with the PBF Power Marketing ISA; (that First Revised Service Agreement No. 3665 is being superseded; revisions to a milestone; revisions to Appendix 1 to reflect updated PJM Tariff provisions; revisions to the Capacity Interconnection Rights sections in the Specifications; modifications to Schedule F to clarify that Unit 6 is the only generating unit authorized to divide its output; and minor ministerial revisions.

Said a new section of the ISA: “Pursuant to and subject to the applicable terms of the Tariff, the Interconnection Customer shall have Capacity Interconnection Rights at the Point(s) of Interconnection specified in this Interconnection Service Agreement in the amount of 189.1 MW commencing June 1, 2018. During the time period from the effective date of this ISA until May 31, 2018 (the ‘interim time period’), the Interconnection Customer may be awarded interim Capacity Interconnection Rights in an amount not to exceed 189.1 MW. The availability and amount of such interim Capacity Interconnection Rights shall be dependent upon completion and results of an interim deliverability study.
