PJM terminates wholesale deal for 10-MW Quakertown solar project in N.J.

PJM Interconnection on July 18 notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of the cancellation of an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement from 2012 with Quakertown Farm LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Jersey Central Power & Light.

Said PJM: “The Quakertown Farms WMPA is being cancelled because Quakertown Farms has decided not to move forward with its project and will not participate in PJM’s markets.”

This project was under PJM Queue Position #X2-054. It covered the Quakertown Solar Farm #2, to be located in Franklin Township, N.J. The Maximum Facility Output was to be 10 MW. It was a ground-mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic generating facility consisting of solar arrays and a 34 kV collector system. By Dec. 31, 2014, the developer was to demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

A developer contact is: Quakertown Farms LLC, PO Box 370, Quakertown, NJ 08868, Attn: Scott Acker.
