PJM revises interconnect deal for 785-MW CPV Shore project in New Jersey

PJM Interconnection on Sept. 22 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised version of an executed interconnection service agreement (ISA) entered into with CPV Shore LLC and transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light.

The CPV Shore ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM system of a 785-MW, gas-fired generating facility located in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey. The revised CPV Shore ISA contains various differences from the 2013 original agreement it supersedes, including:

  • Headers were revised to reflect this revised service agreement and to remove the effective date;
  • Section 1.0 has been revised to add identifying information regarding Original Service Agreement No. 3604 being superseded by this amended version;
  • Section 18.0 has been revised to update notice information for PJM, Interconnection Customer and the Interconnected Transmission Owner; and
  • The signature blocks have been modified to reflect the signatories.

The agreement covers the Woodbridge Energy Center, located in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey. This is a 2×1 combined cycle facility. On or before June 1, 2017, CPV Shore must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units, which is unchanged from the prior version of the agreement.

Project contact information is: CPV Shore LLC, 8403 Colesville Road, Suite 915, Silver Spring, MD 20910, Attention: CPV Shore Asset Manager.

CPV Shore on Sept. 1 filed with FERC a proposed rate schedule covering cost-based Reactive Supply and Voltage Control to be offered in the PJM market. The facility is expected to commence commercial operations on or before Jan. 1, 2016, the filing cover letter noted. Testimony attached to the filing, however, said that this is the target date for initial operation.
