PJM works out wholesale deal for 2-MW battery project in N.J.

PJM Interconnection on March 24 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with Power Efficiency Corp., developer of a 2-MW battery storage project, and transmission owner Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G).

“PJM is submitting the Power Efficiency WMPA for filing because Power Efficiency intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to PSE&G’s distribution facilities,” said PJM.

The Power Efficiency WMPA facilitates the developer’s participation in PJM’s organized wholesale markets via wholesale sales from Power Efficiency’s 2 MW battery storage facility located in Hillsborough, New Jersey. The Power Efficiency WMPA indicates that the battery storage facility is an Energy Resource, that Power Efficiency will be permitted to sell up to 2 MW of energy into PJM’s markets, and that PJM reserves the right to limit injections in the event reliability would be affected by output greater than such quantity.

The Hillsborough Battery is located at 315 Sunnymeade Road, Hillsborough, N.J. On or before Sept. 1, 2016, the developer must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

A project contact is: Power Efficiency Corp., 2200 Northern Blvd., Suite 201, Greenvale, NY 11548, Attn: Scott Caputo.
