PJM terminates wholesale deal for 16-MW Big Hill Solar Farm in New Jersey

PJM Interconnection on Nov. 5 notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of the cancellation of an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with S. Skeba Farms LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light for a 16-MW solar project.

The agreement is being cancelled because S. Skeba Farms has decided not to move forward with its project, said PJM. The project, under PJM Queue Position #W4-072, was supposed to reach commercial operation by the end of 2014.

The agreement covered the Big Hill Solar Farm, to be located on Route 33 at Manalapan, New Jersey. The maximum facility output was to be 16 MW. It was to be made up of solar photovoltaic panels connected to 1 MW inverters through 480 V / 34.5 kV step up transformers.

Project contact information is: S. Skeba Farms LLC, 11 Wycoff Mill–Applegarth Road, Monroe Township, NJ 08831, Attn: Stanley Skeba.
