PJM terminates interconnection deal for 2-MW landfill gas facility in Virginia

PJM Interconnection on June 21 notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of the cancellation of an Interconnection Service Agreement with Fauquier County Landfill Gas LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Virginia Electric and Power.

Said PJM: “The Fauquier County ISA is being cancelled because the customer facility, Fauquier County Landfill Units 1 and 2 deactivated on January 31, 2016 prior to commencement of interconnection service under this ISA.”

This facility is under PJM Queue Position #Y2-099 and located at 8499 Bingham Rd., Warrenton, Virginia. It is made up to two 1-MW Waukesha internal combustion engines. Under this ISA, on or before June 1, 2016, the company was to demonstrate commercial operation of the two generating units.

Project contact information is: Fauquier County Landfill Gas LLC, 1300 17th St. N., STE#1500, Arlington, VA 22209, Attn: Mark Kumm.

Incidentally, Fauquier Landfill Gas LLC and Potomac Power Resources LLC jointly on April 20 filed with FERC a notice of cancellation of their market-based rate tariffs. Fauquier Landfill Gas owned an approximately 2-MW landfill gas-fired facility located at the Fauquier County Landfill in Fauquier County, Virginia. The facility was interconnected with the transmission system of Virginia Electric and Power. However, the Fauquier Landfill facility was retired effective Jan. 31, 2016, and Fauquier Landfill has no customers.

Potomac Power Resources formerly owned four generating units in the PJM Interconnection balancing authority area but all four were retired in May and June of 2012. It also has no customers.
