FERC accepts wholesale deal for 6-MW OneEnergy Sunfish project in Maryland

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Sept. 22 accepted an Aug. 19 filing by PJM Interconnection of an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with OneEnergy Sunfish Solar LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Delmarva Power and Light.

“PJM is submitting the OneEnergy WMPA for filing because OneEnergy intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to DP&L’s distribution facilities,” said the Aug. 19 filing.

The agreement covers OneEnergy’s 6-MW Sunfish Solar facility, to be located in Millington, Maryland. The OneEnergy WMPA indicates that OneEnergy shall have Capacity Interconnection Rights in the amount of 2.28 MW commencing on June 1, 2017. It further provides for Capacity Interconnection Rights on an interim basis during the time period from July 20, 2015, to May 31, 2017 (the “interim time period”) in an amount not to exceed 2.28 MW. 

This is a ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic facility. Under the WMPA, on or before July 31, 2016, OneEnergy must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.
