PJM Interconnection on Oct. 5 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with Constellation Solar Maryland MC LLC and transmission owner Baltimore Gas and Electric for a 20-MW solar project in Maryland.
“PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because Constellation Solar intends to engage in wholesale sales in PJM’s markets from a generating facility connected to BGE’s distribution facilities,” said the PJM filing.
The Constellation Solar WMPA, designated as Service Agreement No. 3688, supersedes Original Service Agreement No. 3688 entered into among the same parties. The Constellation Solar WMPA is substantively the same as it was submitted to the commission in a 2014 docket, except that the Constellation Solar WMPA reflects an agreement to make various revisions, including a change of the developer’s name from Constellation Solar Maryland LLC to Constellation Solar Maryland MC LLC.
The agreement covers the Perryman Solar Farm, located at 900 Chelsea Road at Perryman, Maryland. The Maximum Facility Output is 20 MW. It will consist of solar panels connected to forty 500-kW inverters connected to 34 kV step-up transformers.
On or before Dec. 31, 2015, Constellation Solar must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.
