PJM ends wholesale deal for 10-MW Deckertown Farm solar project

PJM Interconnection on April 29 notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of the cancellation of a December 2012 Wholesale Market Participation Agreement entered into among PJM, Deckertown Farm LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light.

PJM wrote: “The Deckertown WMPA is being cancelled because project milestones in the Deckertown WMPA were breached and not cured, resulting in the default of the Deckertown WMPA.” 

The agreement covered the 10-MW Lopatcong Solar Farm project, to be located on Belvidere Road, Phillipsburg, New Jersey. It was to be a ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic facility consisting of solar arrays and a 34 kV collector system.

A project contact is: Deckertown Farm LLC, 31 Fairview Hill Road, Newton, NJ 07860, Attn: Scott Lewis.
