PJM cancels wholesale deal for 2-MW landfill gas project in Maryland

PJM Interconnection on Jan. 27 notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of the cancellation of a 2013 Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with Washington County Renewable Energy LLC (WCRE) and interconnecting transmission owner Potomac Edison.

“The WCRE WMPA is being cancelled because WCRE has decided not to move forward with its project and will not participate in PJM’s markets,” said the notice.

This project has been under PJM queue number X2-038. It is called the Washington County Renewable Energy Project, located at 40 West Landfill, Williamsport, Maryland. The Maximum Facility Output was to be 2 MW, derived from two Waukesha LS641-L65 landfill gas-fired reciprocating engine-generator sets, each with approximately 1,100 kW of output, 1,000 kW net each after plant/site load.

A project contact is: Washington County Renewable Energy LLC, 528 Waterloo Road, Warrenton, VA 20186, Attn: Ken Binnix.
