PJM terminates wholesale deal for 9-MW Solar Wind Energy project in New Jersey

PJM Interconnection on Feb. 3 notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of the cancellation of a 2011 Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with Solar Wind Energy LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Public Service Electric and Gas for a 9-MW solar photovoltaic project in New Jersey.

“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 Solar Wind WMPA is thus terminated pursuant to section 1.1 therein.”

This project has been under PJM Queue Position #W4-080. It is called the IRL Landfill Solar Project, to have been located on Nixon Lane, Edison Township, Middlesex County, New Jersey. The Maximum Facility Output was to be 9 MW.

A project contact is: Solar Wind Energy LLC, 30 Jackson Road, Suite C-3, Medford, NJ 08055, Attn: Richard R. Ragan.
