PJM terminates wholesale deal for 15-MW solar project in New Jersey

PJM Interconnection on Feb. 22 notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of the cancellation of a 2012 Wholesale Market Participation Agreement (WMPA) entered into among PJM, Solar Wind Energy LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light.

“The Solar Wind WMPA is being cancelled because milestones in the Solar Wind WMPA were breached and were not cured, resulting in the default of the Solar Wind WMPA,” said PJM. 

The agreement, dating back to January 2012, had covered the Solar Wind Energy Solar Farm, to have been located at Oak Glen and Randolph roads, Howell, New Jersey. The Maximum Facility Output was to be 15 MW. The project included solar photovoltaic panels connected to 1 MW inverters through 7.5-34.5 kV step up transformers.

A project contact is: Solar Wind Energy LLC, 30 Jackson Road, Suite No. C3, Medford, NJ 08055 Attn: Richard Ragan.
