PJM works out revised wholesale deal for 15-MW Maryland solar project

PJM Interconnection on Oct. 5 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with Marina Energy LLC and Delmarva Power and Light for a 15-MW solar project in Maryland.

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

The Marina Energy WMPA supersedes a prior agreement with LS-Egret LLC, the original project developer. The Marina Energy WMPA is substantively the same as the prior deal, including the same commercial operation target date of Dec. 31, 2016.

The agreement covers the Rockfish Solar Power Plant, to be located on Levin Dashiell Road at Hebron in Wicomico County, Md. The Maximum Facility Output is to be 15 MW. This is a ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic facility consisting of solar arrays and a 69-kV high side transformer.

A project contact is: Marina Energy LLC, One North White Horse Pike, PO Box 152, Hammonton, NJ 08037, Attn: Theodore Pettinelli, (609) 561-9000, tpettinelli@sjindustries.com.
