The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on June 18 accepted an April 27 filing by PJM Interconnection of an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with project developer Granger Electric of Hancock County and transmission owner Ohio Power.

PJM is submitted this agreement because Granger intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to Ohio Power’s distribution facilities. This project is located at the Hancock County Sanitary Landfill at Findlay, Ohio. It has a maximum facility output of 3.2 MW. The system consists of four 4.16-kV Caterpillar synchronous generators each rated for 800 kW output power, and a 200 kW ancillary equipment load, providing a net effective output of 3 MW.

Under this agreement, on or before March 31, 2015, Granger was to demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

Company contact information is: Granger Electric of Hancock County 16980 Wood Road, Lansing, MI 48906-1044, Attn: Todd Davlin.
