PJM Interconnection on Oct. 15 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with Zions Town Center LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Virginia Electric and Power for a 2-MW battery storage project.

Under this agreement, on or before Jan. 30, 2016, the developer must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.
